Small Works Spotlight:
Get to know the artists in our Small Works Gallery
When I was 31 years old, I went through a personal transformation resulting in an intense desire to make art. Although I take part time jobs here and there, I spend the majority of my time in the studio, working toward the next show. My expressive work is the result of my intuition, love of color, form, nature, and the animal world. Everything I do, from jewelry holders, to every ceramic piece, has layers of color, which is how I see the world, both internal and external.
I construct animals for the home and garden and although I make many of the same items (such as cats, crows, and badgers) each is individually sculpted and unique. All of my pieces are fired twice and I use underglazes on pieces before the first fire, then glaze again for the final fire to cone 6.
