I am an artist; it’s not what I do, but simply who I am and always have been. I started with two dimensional art, then . . . I touched clay. I molded, I pinched, threw, manipulated, wedged, pressed, paddled, assembled . . . clay. I loved the feel of it. The simplicity. Clay drew me in and has yet to let me go! I embraced the joy and therapy of “playing in clay.” My work has often been described as animated. I attribute the “life” in my pieces to my ability to keep it fun and playfully loose. I hope to continue "playing in clay" and exploring new ideas for a very long time.
