Inspired by nature, I have found clay to be a sympathetic medium for artistic expression. Walking in nature is an important part of my day. Interaction with the creatures of fields and forest edges is part of that. I capture the playful character of creatures that emerge from the clay as I create sculpture, owls being my most sought after work.
Following a career teaching environmental horticulture, my work is closely tied to the plants I know so intimately. Hand building has allowed an exploration of the fusion of plants and pottery. My thrown pieces feature plant themed decoration and earth tones.  Some are pieces to be used in the garden, but all are simple forms intended to be used and enjoyed. My work has been successfully shown in a number of exhibitions.
