Artist Statement

I’m an environmentally conscious artist, repurposing materials, and power my studio with solar energy.

As an active, exhibiting artist I also do board and committee work, and teach art to inner city kids.

For over 25 I’ve created work for runway shows, large tile insulations and Museum exhibitors.

Touch is a critical aspect of my work.

The brilliance and texture of my work doesn’t just 
invite viewers to brush their fingers over the crevices and curves, they demand it.

​Born into a family of artists, I continue to soak up a 
vast array of imagery to incorporate into my wearable ceramic corsets and high relief tile. 
The clay structure allows me to emulate anything from marine life to floral porcelain attire.
