Artist Statement

My artwork is inspired by symbols from my dreams, subconscious thought, and from personal states of being.  Working realistically, I hand sculpt stoneware and porcelain clay sculptures, such as moths, barnacles, or flowers. With each new project, I embrace a new processes in porcelain and stoneware clay. Multiple pieces are re-imagined as a whole, and assembled as clusters, blossoming or decomposing, placed together intuitively, creating a wall sized design.
