Resume & Artist Statement

'Blue Bird', Mixed Media Sculpture, 2003

Artist Statement
I love faces, landscapes, texture and color. When I look out my window, I see faces in the clouds, leaves on the trees, rocks and mountains. These visions shape and inspire my work in functional and sculptural clay, window screening and paint.

Now my work is in clay creating functional and sculptural pieces as well as masks. I’ve also created  garden art, mixed media sculptures in window screening and copper. Many of my mixed media sculptures also include my writing as well.
