<p>A maker who enjoys working creatively with a variety of media and techniques. Love for modeling can be seen in works completed in every media. With clay; patterns of color, texture and metallic bling brings a bit of folkish flair. Modeling with charcoal, paint and mixed media, on the other hand can yield expressively modeled realistic images. People, pets, florals and folk patterning appear repeatedly and so could be considered favorite subjects, all of which are fashioned with love.</p>

Visual arts: Paper cutting, Painting

When I created my first stencils 30 years ago, they were a means to get paint onto material. Once I took a picture of a stencil and discovered the beauty of the paper.

My goal is to inspire those who see my work to look at faces in a differently, to feel emotion for the people in them, and to help them find beauty in something as simple as a piece of paper.

Visual arts: Ceramics

The objective of my artwork is to simultaneously create decorative and utilitarian ceramics. When artwork is functional, people establish a different bond with it, and I take pleasure in being a part of that. I strive for flowing forms, vibrant colors, and intricate surface patterns that give the piece accent lines for its form. My inspiration comes from colors, repetitive imagery, and organic patterns found in nature. I am also interested in the high contrast of black glazes with pops of color.
