Handmade ceramic art for your home and office

About Me

My Background

As a child, my introduction to the arts was through music. My Grandmother played the piano for traveling silent movies and my parents both played the piano and sang. After a disastrous start with piano lessons, I was introduced to the violin. I loved playing in our local youth symphony and played well past my college years. 

My Medium

My first exposure to the visual arts was in college. I trained in a variety of mediums but was immediately drawn to clay. For over twenty years, I created hand built artwork and glazed almost exclusively in the Raku style. Later, my work evolved into much brighter, more enduring colors with washes in oxidation firings. I also embrace technology and usually am the one behind the camera. 

My Statement

My experience as a classically trained violinist resonates throughout my work. It imparts a lyrical quality that speaks of beauty and harmony with classical proportions. My artwork can be found in public and private collections throughout the USA, Canada and the UK.
