I  have been a studio potter since 1981, when I entered an outdoor art show and was delighted to sell out within 2 hours. Working with clay is a deeply satisfying experience for me.

I love the texture and the coolness of clay, the opportunity to work with my body as well as my mind, and I am energized by the many possibilities in a lump of "mud." I have a filing cabinet that overflows with sketches and ideas for what I want to make. I feel so very fortunate to be able to "work" at what I love, and I treasure the privilege of making things that other folks cherish and take into their homes. I trust that my porcelain will be treasured for generations.

My work in porcelain is recognizable by its undulating organic forms. I have learned how to gently coax the white clay into graceful whirls and elegant forms. I see my porcelain forms as freezing a moment of fluidity, with references to flowing fabric and garden blooms. When I meet someone who owns one of my porcelain vases, bowls, plates, or wall sculptures I am frequently gratified to hear about the pleasure that my work brings into someone's life.

Over the years, I have been pleased to earn numerous awards with my porcelain forms. My works are shown at galleries and museums throughout the United States and are included in many public and private collections. I created a large porcelain wall sculpture for the Corning Glass Works Executive Club and pieces from my folded vase series, along with other works, have been exhibited at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery.
