Artist Statement

    I am a collector of objects; bicycles, books, baskets, clay, paintings, prints, plants, etc. I try to keep an interest in the world around me. Amassing these objects gives me continued movement through my personal space with never ending images and thoughts. The act of adding and arranging never seems to end; this helps draw new ideas into my creative process.

    I am also a maker of objects, using clay as my dominant material. When channeling my interests out into surface and form I am able to connect with seen and collected objects as well as the earth to give what I made life. From the simplest shape of a nail to the complexity of a sunset, these are not just vessels they are ideas, memories, substance and joy.
