I am a potter and a painter, a gallerist, a teacher, and an arts advocate.
I create functional pottery for people to use. I work with clay for the tactile pleasure, and the immediacy of such a forgiving medium. I love the intuitive relationship I have with clay. I have recently returned to figurative work in ceramics.
I paint for myself. My paintings often are inspired by words, (poetry, prose, or lyrics) and have recently taken both a surreal turn and a political voice. My oil paintings are guided by Tolstoy’s words:
“All the variety, all the charm, all the beauty of life is made up of light and shadow.”
