I see myself as a mixed media artist who loves texture, color and surprise.
My first tools were from a Cracker Jacks box, when there were real toys in the boxes. With the tools, I dismantled the family phone…and lost the chance to use those particular tools again.
My husband taught me the value of more careful building and helped supply me with a great arsenal of tools and a love of creating. I work now in ceramics, metal, wood and fiber in a ceramic studio/wood shop that has lots of storage for my collection of diverse materials. My greatest strength and biggest weakness is my inability to choose just one medium. Each material or combination of materials acts differently and triggers a new perspective or interpretation of what I see.
