The majority of my work is realized using ceramic materials. I begin my work conceptually, and then choose techniques and processes from the ceramic vernacular to appropriately give form to those ideas. My work ranges from the personal to the political, as well as addressing my notions of beauty. The objects that carry this information necessarily vary. Objects can be functional, multiples, sculptural or flat tile work. Within all of these idioms, ideas and formats, there is a love of color, pattern and form. I am very involved with lush glazed surfaces. This tends to be a common thread through my work.
