203 West Cannon Street, Lafayette, Boulder, CO, USA
A ceramic artist since 2003, I currently create sculptures in ceramic, steel, and occasionally wood. My pieces range from tall pillars clad with glazed ceramic relief carvings to small tabletop works. I also create colorful glazed ceramic wall murals and individual art tiles. I love to explore the natural world of animals, birds, insects, and plant forms in my clay work, very often combined with a variety of abstract shapes and designs. I am not drawn to realism, but rather find joy in creating forms that are more symbolic. I use a robust clay body with low moisture absorption which is able to withstand weather extremes, making much of my work suitable for outdoor placement.
I am especially interested in incorporating my art into the public space and enjoy the collaboration that is at the heart of such works. I have public pieces permanently installed in Louisville, Lafayette, Superior, Seattle, and McMinnville, Oregon and I regularly participate in sculpture-on-loan programs in cities around Colorado.
