A fascination with form and fantasy has been present in me since early childhood.  Raised with a strong background in the fine and performing arts, I believe that my first solid step towards clay came when I took my first ballet class.  There I discovered the deep, primordial joy of being centered within the body and expressing myself through the freedom of movement.  I gained a deep and resonant appreciation for the body and all of its sensual delight, mystery and divinity.

 

In my thirties I developed my artistic skills by creating jewelry.  As a jewelry-maker I honed my design skills, molding and shaping movement and form through the various mediums with which I worked.  The power and beauty I experienced in raising a family and honoring my own traditions and new ones I unearthed through exploring various cultures led to a larger and freer format for expressing my personal story.  I discovered clay and my work took flight, taking on a much deeper connection.  Through my sculpture I attempt to tap into the heart center of the individual.  I feel that my work is literally born out of my awareness of my environment---expressing what is at the very core of my being.  I want very much for my work to reflect the beauty and harmony I see in the physical world as well as the deeper, tender, spiritual connections people make in coming together through this dance of life that we all share.
