After an exciting career in commercial art designing with many different media,

 I rediscovered clay, a tactile and intriguing material that has held me captive ever since.

My work ranges in scale from small 3" coil baskets to large scale architectural installations.

As my interest in clay continues, my love of working with other media has been rekindled.  Not only am I combining clay with other materials, I am also delving into many different aspects of 

fiber and other sculpture techniques.

Linear or 3-dimensional, abstract or realistic, the visual and tactile senses are intrinsic to my art.
