"There is something in the human heart that craves art. While the level of need varies among people, I need art like I need water. Without it my soul would shrivel and starve."
"So why clay art? I can't explain it. I must have art in my heart and clay in my veins. I love the dimensionality. I like creating pieces that are diminished if not viewed from every side."
"Fine art should touch the viewer and hopefully convey more than one concept. I believe the viewer is the most important element for a piece of art. Art is in the mind and heart of the viewer. I like to create pieces that entice the viewer to think a while and tickle the imagination."
"My pieces are high fired stoneware. They often have over 15 different glazes and have been fired 3 times."
