I have always been drawn to art and have experimented in various
mediums all of my life.  When I discovered clay, a whole new world of
artistic expression opened up for me.  I focus on functional pieces,
mostly wheel-thrown with decorations such as sgraffito and glaze
painting.  Face jugs and piggy banks are especially fun for me but
many of my pieces are made to be used in the home on a daily basis.
This includes various bowl and cup designs, pitchers, vases, and
plates.  My work is somewhat whimsical with elements of folk art.  I
am always experimenting with new designs and techniques, so my work is constantly evolving.
