Pottery Artist

I have had an ongoing love affair with color since my Kindergarten teacher told me that I would be an artist one day. Her words inspired me to become an award winning artist including ‘Best of Show’ as well as being accepted as a member of ‘Oil Painters of America’.

I was able to integrate the creativity of my paintings with the
elements of earth & fire thus leading me to my great joy of creating pottery. My pottery is very organic in form, texture & color that is inspired from one of my simple pleasures in life…Nature, our original masterpiece!
