My life is put on hold when I play with clay. It is the one activity that engages my so totally my thoughts are simply unable to wander. I dream a shape and I have to make it.
Modern architecture and natural landscapes inspire my sculptural forms, but I feel there is a magical connection when a work of art is small enough to cradle in your hands. I also believe that you should be able to share your home with objects you need AND love, this is why I am to turn everyday objects into sculptural objects.
Most of my pieces begin on the potters' wheel, and then I find ways to subtly reshape them into my fluid and organic forms, forms that fit and flow quietly with each other like elements in a landscape.
Beauty, for me, lies in undecorated simplicity.
