I am intrigued by the human condition and inspired by the ability of one to not only recover from unspeakable life challenges; but emerge resilient. My former career as a play therapist, sensitized me to these complex processes, and has inspired my pieces. My metaphorical human and anthropomorphic animal figures reflect my life experiences and observations. I hand-build my pieces with mid-fire clay, using colored terra sigillata, stains, underglaze and glaze in multiple firings. Whether a piece disturbs or delights, my hope is to engage and elicit an emotional response. Every sculpture is a unique, one-of-a-kind, story teller. I live and work on a small farm in rural Boulder County, where I am grateful to live in such an inspiring environment.
