My fanciful and gritty art work evokes a vividness infused with an uncanny merger of idea with form to encapsulate both timelessness and the surreal……….. Just kidding! I am a builder of things, a maker. The ceramic sculpture I create is an expression of that passion. For me its all about the journey of turning a bag of clay into a funny, if not relevant, piece of art. Each summer I produce a new series sculptures. First I harvest a little nugget of an idea from the daily swirl of humanity. I create a narrative, do a little research and then go to work. The finished sculptures are exhibited at the Texas Clay Festival in October. I have the good fortune to be a resident artist at the Eye of the Dog art Center in San Marcos, Texas where go with the flow.


Due to the current health crisis the 2020 Texas Clay Festival has been canceled. A virtual show to be announced!
