Mission Statement:
I am but one artist in millions embarking on a journey, exploring what it means being human – particularly with psyche via the medium of clay.
Living and loving near the ocean in Venice, CA – I share my life with my beloved boat-building boyfriend, our dog and 2 cats; creating clay creatures & unique functional art using high fire and low fire clay. Using glazes, and compatible ceramic materials. Mixed Media.
My ceramic studio continues to bring me daily pleasure, gratitude, curiosity for creative expression and good friends.
