One cannot describe the colors and movement in her pieces of clay without a nod to the hills of Tuscany. Long before the Italian countryside swept her away, her love of earth, wind and fire was formed in the hills of Appalachia and later matured to the rugged purple mountains of the Big Bend in West Texas. You feel the curve of a river and the rise of a mountain reflected in her early work, as she studied under the likes of people that require only one name; Bringle, Soldner, Reitz, and also in her contemporary work that, like Malcolm Davis, seeks not to polish the stream or change the mountain but to make them live inside a functional design.
