I feel that magic is necessary for contentment and joy in life! My artwork is a celebration of that magic. I am awestruck at the incredible magic and beauty of the earth's creations and I attempt to share my admiration for what nature has created by recreating a personal intepretation in my artwork. The variety of leaves and the magic within them inspire me! I hope that through my creations, others may bring this joy into their homes and appreciate the magic of nature's creations!

Although I was first introduced to ceramics about 20 years ago, I have been developing my own ceramic art for over 10 years - learning, growing, and creating new designs and techniques.

One of my favorite firing methods is raku due to the fascinating color variances that can be achieved with the copper-based glazes on my leaf designs. I love the way they can resemble the red-green shades of a new spring leaf or the golden plum & fiery shades of fall. The crackle effect also adds depth, softness, and the feeling of time -a feeling of a place somewhere within eternity.
