Artist Statement
My interest is in elegant and modern form and volume. To finish, I frequently carve, texture, etch, or apply slip to add an organic finish to a refined shape in order to create tension between the perfect and imperfect. Which for me is a metaphor for just about everything. Our search for perfection or ideal and then the beauty that comes from imperfection.
Biography
I began pursuing ceramics more seriously when I retired in 2011. I've studied at the Multnomah Arts Center, Archie Bray Foundation, and Hoffman Center for the Arts. I bring a background of professional visual design.
