My ceramic artwork takes a critical view of traditional cultural issues, and lullabies that are part of my childhood and adult culture.
All my influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience, but I always loved expressing by feeling with beauty of the forms. Art remains as a strong contender of how we share our thoughts and ideas.
I am often looking for avenues of the unexpected. An ironic twist to images or things you might not expect.
Majority of my works are “Wood fire” labor intense ＆ result are unpredictable.
But newest development with my work Mid-range fire, love to expressing with color.

Clay holds endless possibilities, which has kept my interest for more than twenty years. My work naturally leans to the sculptural, exploring repeating forms in the natural world and interpreting the expression of various animals.
Hand-building feels more organic to me and I enjoy forming the clay in hand, with no equipment needed. I intentionally leave imperfections, clearly indicating
something made in a simple way.
I prefer to fire using wood in a variety of kiln styles, but also use gas and electric. Exploring additional firing options is of interest to me.
The last couple of years I focused on figurative sculpture and became enchanted by birds, it has been fun to try to capture a gesture in simple form. This year I am having fun making fish after taking a raku workshop over the winter.
