I have worked in clay most of my adult life. For most of my career I produced wheel thrown functional and decorative work. I started doing sculptural work after participating in several large community based mural projects. I liked the narrative aspect they offered. In 2010 I had an image I wanted to do in mural form and after I produced that piece I just kept going. While I still do some functional work, my focus is on the bas releif wall sculptures.
My imagery is often inspired by song lyrics, phrases from litterateur or spoken word, as well as the work of other artists. I keep.a binder full of these ‘prompts’ and use them as jumping off points. Often of course, the piece goes in a completely different direction than what I intended. It is one of the exciting things about producing art, the mystery of how a piece evolves and has its own life, independent of my intentions.
