- I have a passion for art and a need to express myself.
I think of my strange animal/human-like sculptures as creating an opening or clearing a path for what is poetic in the “Ordinary”. Something that is heart felt.
When I was about eight years old, this obsession all started with a fuzzy pair of toy mice who were dressed as a bride and groom and a children’s book entitled, “Down on Easter Lane”. Years later, I never thought that I would devote my artistic life to drawing and sculpting animals on pottery.
My ceramic pieces embody animal-human transformation and are inspired by my love of home and fascination with animals, folklore, fairytale, and early-20th-century figurines and culture.
I am a busy woman with a demanding job as well as a family and so I SLOWLY create work in my “free” time. Here are a few examples of what I have been working on. They are hand built function work with a lot of carved and drawn images. Someone told me once that life is stranger than fiction. I think my ceramics pieces reflect that sentiment.
