My work attempts to explore the connections between people and their environment, serving both a utilitarian purpose and as an aesthetic means to open everyone to the beauty of their environment. I want to explore individual connection to home and nature by creating vessels and drawing images that evoke an emotional response and also explore how public art invites people to deepen their connection to one another and to their sense of place and home.
My work has multiple directions: functional ceramics, print making, tote bags, and photography. For the last ten years my primary work has been that of a studio artist. I use imperfections in form as evidence of human vulnerability to awaken the user to the imperfect perfection in everyday domestic existence. The drawings heighten the connection of the user to the vessel.
