I’m the type of person that gets bored easily. I’m in constant search for the balance we need to live these lives. I have been playing in clay for over 40 years and have not gotten tired of the quest. What I love about the material most is that it’s the great imitator. Clay allows you to express your greatest feelings and emotions, mimic, emulate or even mock the tactile surfaces that we are exposed to on a daily basis. That’s why I love working with the soft textured slabs of clay. It allows me an opportunity to exploit that plasticity so inherent to the material. I enjoy the play between the textures and the rich colors in the layering of the high fire glazes.
I have earned 2 masters degrees from the University of Dallas, Irving, Texas. Currently I maintain a studio in Dallas,Texas. I show regularly and present workshops nationally. My studio in pagosa springs Colorado is complete and we will be offering classes as well as workshops in the summers.
