I have participated in numerous arts and crafts shows in New England, New York, and Pennsylvania. My work is also displayed in stores and galleries nationwide. My primary focus has been to create both sculptural and functional ceramics collections inspired by natural elements and organic forms as well as the use of contrasting combinations of bold colors, textures and patterns.
I currently live and create my artwork in Providence RI with my son Alexander.
