I am predominantly a ceramic artist who makes wheel thrown vessels, handmade tiles and tile mosaics using a variety of methods. My original designs have evolved over forty years as a full-time artist and I continue to explore new combinations of shapes, textures, color and firing techniques. I attended the Pretoria Art School at the College for Advanced Technology in Pretoria, South Africa. This is where I was introduced to clay. My time in South Africa definitely influenced my work. Most of my early impressions were mainly colorful patterns and texture. After returning to Texas, I studied at The University of Texas at Arlington, Texas where I focused on ceramics and sculpture.I became a full-time ceramic artist selling as well as exhibiting my ceramics throughout the SouthWest. Still making and loving it.
