My studio practice revolves around pottery, ceramic processes, color, pattern, and the figure. I make ceramics, paintings, and works on paper. I use very similar methods of building surfaces with ceramics as well as in my painting. Line, pattern, and color all come into play, I enjoy the formal elements of art, and I enjoy the “building of a surface”. Many times the figure emerges, the figure is a reoccurring subject in my work. And there is humor in this figures life.
