Drawing, painting, color theory, and elements of design were my main focus during formal art education. Those aesthetic values are integral tools in my current artistic expression.

As a young painter I returned again and again to the problem of expressing volume. When I tried working in clay, I knew it was my perfect medium. Even drawing and painting play into my ceramic compositions.

Most of my work is intended for everyday use, and I want people to enjoy its unique sculptural qualities as a special treat.
