I became enamored with clay in high school art class. My parents, both artists, recognized my infatuation and converted part of our old barn into a studio. Fascination with the ceramic process meant I spent hundreds of hours making. The simple task of giving early work to friends and family revealed an important aspect in creating art: sharing it. I discovered that my creative process is a cycle that begins with, and is completed by, offering my work to the world. Decades later l’m still fascinated with clay, and now work from my garage studio.
