I fell in love with clay the first time that I touched it. There is something both sensual, yet childlike, about having your hands in clay and feeling it squish between your fingers. Clay, with it's unique ability to bestow a three dimensional quality allows me to explore narrative themes in my work. My love of color and storytelling comes from an art filled and imaginative childhood and is influenced strongly by the wonderful works of Paul Gauguin and the more contemporary painter, Ann Morley. Both human and animal foibles offer a rich and endless wellspring for my art. My skewed sense of humor finds delight in both the ribald and absurd expressions of daily life. I hope that my work provokes, titillates, confounds and amuses the viewer.
