I rapidly grew from functional pottery by feeling the earth move through my hands as I was molding clay. This drew me to nature and being a sculptress. We are so far removed from nature that we are broken … not whole anymore. To become whole again, you must listen to your inner self and return to Nature. My work is born from the earth, the wood and the fire. I truncate at the shoulders of my sculptures because it confuses everybody … the torso is the soul. I incorporate natural elements like precious/semi-precious stones and fossils to complete the sculpture.
