Description

“My first experience with clay was at the insistence of a close friend who wanted to try a new hobby. I just went along for fun, but ironically it became my new hobby. Twenty-four years later working with clay has become part of my daily existence. I fell in love with the challenge of creating 3-dimensional clay sculptures from images I sketch out in my mind.

 There is a fascination with trying to express nonverbal emotion through clay, especially with human portraits. Many of my animal sculptures take on more of a whimsical or humorous spirit. My equine sculptures were born from memories of my lifelong love of horses, beginning with my very first pony at age 6 through most of my adult life. And what better firing technique to use but actual horsehair to burn the intricate design into the clay body. Each sculpture is hand built and carries a little bit of my personality with it.”

Being able to create sculptural pieces with my hands is truly a spiritual process. Part of me will always live in that piece of artwork no matter where it finds a home. That is why I continue to create and share my love of art.
