About

I am inspired by the beauty of shapes and textures that I observe in nature.
When I create, I choose to re-imagine, not replicate, these memories.
Coastal artifacts, woodland finds, or lush flora influence my exploration in the studio.

About

I am inspired by the beauty of shapes and textures that I observe in nature.
When I create, I choose to re-imagine, not replicate, these memories.

As each piece emerges, whether intricate or simple, it feels new, yet decidedly familiar.

Beyond the individual sculptural object, I am interested in how the pieces relate in groups, one to another and to the collector.

I am a collector. You are likely a collector too. It is our human nature. From the leaves we pocketed as young children to the art on our walls, we collect.

I invite the you to join in the creative process by curating an original ceramic still life. Whether you start with a pouch of pods and pebbles, a series of small forms or a single large piece, a collection begins.

Over time, I encourage the evolution of these collections as new pieces are presented and incorporated. This unspoken exchange between artist and collector re-inspires me to begin the creation process once again.
