The daily choices I make in my studio are to produce a piece out of feeling
or out of fun; out of knowledge or out of experiment; out of self or out of
someone else’s self; and on it continues. Clay is a medium of tremendous
variability. It also has a forgiving path of development. Combining years of
experience and artistic pursuit, I seek to draw the viewer into
thought, to tug at the soul, to hear the voice of the past, the roll call of the present, the vision of the future, uncomfortable tensions, of questioning
ideas of happier moments, of mysterious beliefs.
I have been a professional sculptor since the
early 1990s. While living in the Washington D.C. area, my focus was on figurative abstract neon
and clay sculptures. I have had shows in Gaithersburg, Annapolis, and Silver Spring,
Maryland as well as Alexandria, Virginia.
After over a decade of living in Texas, I am excited to exhibit my sculptures throughout the state. I enjoy teaching clay techniques through my home
studio and the Plano Parks and Recreation Department.
Never sitting too long, I am working toward opening a membership clay and glass studio in the center of Plano. Watch for the grand opening of Creative Kilnworks Clay and Glass Studio in 2012!
