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.
