I enjoy working in pottery and tile, because they bring art to the table and every day use. Clay is a great medium for expression. I love that I exist in a long line of potters through history and am part of the reflection of our culture.

My work is Maiolica, an in-glaze hand painted tin glaze technique. I make functional pots and tiles that are meant to celebrate the day. My individual wall pieces and compositions of tiles are hand built and decorated with colorful, loose brushwork. I draw from every day scenes and objects for my imagery. Capturing the color and movement of the moment is my aim…the flowers in my garden trembling in a slight breeze and the sun glowing through them, or the light coming in the window and lighting the room.
