In working with clay, I strive to make functional and beautiful objects. My focus is on the aesthetics of everyday use—how objects can please the eye that views them and the hand that holds and uses them.

I was one of the founding members of VIVA Gallery. At that time my teaching was my priority and I had difficulty producing enough work for the gallery, so I stepped back for a while. I am now on sabbatical from my teaching and back in the gallery with big plans for my pottery. I have enjoyed the inspiration and sense of community that comes from working with fellow artists and craftspeople and I am happy to be back as part of the group.
