I have been playing in clay on and off for much my life. It gives me a sense of calm and focus, which I try to extend to the rest of my day. Between gardening and clay, it’s apparent I love playing in mud. Being fortunate to live in both Arizona and coastal Maine, my pottery reflects influences from
both the seacoast and the American Southwest. For example, when I am in Arizona, I may decorate my pots with quails and when I am in Maine, I am more likely to use herons. I get excited experimenting with new techniques so my pottery is always evolving and there are never two pieces alike. When in Maine, I work out of my studio in Eliot, and show my work at several local craft shows, as well as Green Heron Gallery, Sunrise Grill, Port City Artisans, and York Art Association.
