My artistic journey has taken me from an initial introduction of wheel throwing clay to hand building clay sculpture. As I express myself through clay, I hope to communicate something of what I feel and believe, at least in an ethereal way, to my audience.
I am interested in the figure and in body-image issues surrounding women. In my 2001 thesis show I used abstracted “goddess” imagery in much of my work as a metaphor for the illusive ideal form.
While I no longer work in the large scale such as those pictured here, I continue to enjoy playing with textures, positive/negative space and inside/outside dynamics in my current work.
Working with clay is meditative for me. During my creative process, clay seems to take on a life of its own. I hope some of the magic I feel when that happens is reflected in my finished art work.
