I create colorful, rustic functional ware and mixed-media sculpture. Clay, glass, neon, and found objects provide a never-ending toy box of creative fun for my sculptures. As a technique junkie, the daily choices I make in my studio are to produce a piece out of feeling or out of fun; out of knowledge or out of experiment; out of self or out of someone else’s self; and on it continues. Combining years of experience and artistic pursuit, I seek to draw the viewer into thought, to feel uncomfortable tensions, to question the basis of happier moments, and to weigh mysterious beliefs. And, of course, I want the viewer to WANT to touch.
