Artist Bio:
I fell in love with clay almost 40 years ago, and have sought refuge in it, on and off, ever since. I love the texture, the malleability, the beauty of creating something of value out of material dug out of the earth, and above all, I love the patience it has taught me. It will not be hurried or forced, although I love the challenge of manipulating the material, creating different texture, surfaces, and designs.

Artist Statement:
Over the past few years, I have transitioned from potter to sculptor, creating figures and busts with a particular interest in faces, hair, the human head. I am inspired by ancient sculptures and mythology and people I see on the subway. Each piece I create has a personality, and like birthing a child, I often don't know exactly how they will turn out.
