About the Artist
As a child, I had dirt under my fingernails. I continue to allow the earth to feed me information for my art and for daily living. My expression is basic yet intrigues me to continue this exploration of clay and the figure. Working intuitively from pounds of wet clay, forms appear and stories develop. I may be questioning an occurrence or celebrating a relationship or just be aware of daily life. The search continues until I reach teh core: the spiritual level of the sculpture. Then the work can speak. At the present, I am exploring new territory in the west while embracing my southern heritage. I am touching ground, getting to the basics, and listening.
Each sculpture is hand built, mainly using thick coils, and fired three to five times depending on the color and surface I am trying to achieve. I approach the color on the clay as a painter. My palette is a combination of oxides, slips, underglazes and glazes. The form of the piece informs the way I should approach the surface.
