why red clay?
after studying art at gordon college in massacheusetts, i moved to my parent's farm in rural north carolina for one wonderful year of nothing. i made art. i got lost on long walks alone. i took photos of shacks, and farms, and fields of turned up red clay. i love the color of red clay, the feel of it underneath bare feet, and so the name- red clay. it is my favorite place in this world, and the place where i found my inspiration to draw.
sitting out in those fields, i discovered that what i really love to draw are the same things that i drew as a child: animals and mermaids and such. in my illustrations i want to take the wonderful simplicity of everyday life and show it magic.
Around the web
i work early in the morning with coffee and quiet, and i try to continue during the day with my little girls buzzing around me. i draw the things i love: birds and bugs, imaginary creatures, things close at hand, and things found in story books.
