I have been an artist all my life and simply could not live without it. It’s my calling and on a higher level,
my purpose in bringing fulfillment to others. Art is completely subjective in my view and one of the few
abilities we all have in common. Visual communication is a universal language. It is innate to every child.

My work reflects influence from traditional design incorporating innovative materials, collected
artifacts, and found objects. My
favorite expressions include an element of surprise and non-conformity.

I fell in love with the medium of polymer in the late 80's. It's magical medium that expresses color
texture and form all at the same time. In my devotion to encourage the creativity I believe we all
possess, I developed stamps, templates and molds for artists working in polymer and metal clay.
My future objective is to teach the design principles as a means to
create more appealing design quality and to empower women with
the confidence to study their own creative finesse.  Currently I am a
member of the Odyssey ClayWorks Community and teach locally in
the Asheville NC area.
