Inspired by Mother Nature

While traveling all over the world I enjoyed learning about the richness of new cultures and art, meeting new people and observing their lives. One of the great strengths of art is that it crosses the border, fuses cultural differences and opens your mind. My art is truly international; it is inspired by diverse cultures and beauty of nature; it is the expression how I see the world.

My strongest inspiration comes from Mother nature and its weathering influences on the shape of trees, rocks or seedpods, plants and animals both on land and underwater. Nature touches me, evoking desire for exploration. It sets me free and feeds my energy.

Working with clay has become vital part of my life. Clay is a wonderful grounding medium. It’s capabilities are endless allowing to explore how touching the clay and adding different medium gives birth to unique sculptural compositions. It is fascinating to take something essentially flat and turn it into organic form with volume creating a synergy between layered color, texture and movement.

My favorite technique is Raku. What I enjoy the most about it is that each piece is one-of-a-kind. It is always very exciting to open the can with combustibles and see what awaits.

The process of integrating various natural media with clay, like natural stones, sand and wood to create dynamics has a great appeal to me. I feel drawn to forms found in nature. My favorite mediums besides clay are driftwood and natural stone. Each piece of driftwood and stone as a work of art already, created through the hands of Mother Nature.

I am a member of Clay Artists of San Diego and San Diego Art Institute. I have displayed my work in many Regional and local exhibits, galleries and museum and was featured in Fine Art publications.
