At heart I am a functional potter. I throw all of my work on the wheel from stoneware clay. After the pot is thrown I frequently add slip texture to create a sense of movement and channels for my glazes to run and flow. Each piece is carefully trimmed to a finished form which is as elegant as it is functional. My glazes are hand brushed and layered to ensure beautiful outcomes which are as pleasing to the eye as they are to the touch. I fire all of my work in an oxidation environment which allows me great control of the temperatures necessary to achieve the work I envision.

Capturing emotion is everything! I achieve this by incorporating color, energy and texture into my work. Inspired by music I choose the emotion or energy I want to convey in a painting. The subject matter is often related to strength and vulnerability. I strive to convey the power we each possess, but sometimes forget, as a reminder that we can overcome any struggles we encounter in this life. 

My paintings begin with a charcoal sketch, and are then finished with layers of different mediums and many layers of paint. They can best be described as contemporary Impressionism. 

The purpose of my work is very simple. I hope that when looking at my paintings, viewers can find strength and inspiration for every day life.

My artwork is unique, sometimes 
quirky and thought provoking.

My art is created on a non-porous surface such as porclean tile or yupo, a plastic paper. The usual media used is alcohol inks, often supplemented with additional types of ink, pearl medium, or items that add a bit of glitz, like fake gold. The inks are often manipulated with brushes, canned air, or palette knives. The resulting surface is sprayed with a UV protectors to prevent fading. A final coat of a two-part resin is the top coat, along with hangers.

My medium is polymer clay. I have been entranced by this substance for about ten years now, and have developed my own way of working with it. Many viewers assume that my images are painted, but all the colors are clay. My use of the medium feels like a cross between using clay as solid paint, and cutting and assembling the clay like a mosaic that resembles “pietra dura”. I try to distill a lifetime of observing nature into these miniature worlds, that momentarily becomes a paradise for your eyes. The recurring themes I play with are landscape and nature, especially seasonal change and universal cycles.
