My studio practice is varied. I have established a framework of categories, which I have developed over time and continually revisit. I have been working almost exclusively with porcelain for almost 20 years. In 2018, I did a workshop with Debra Fritts to learn more about working with red clay, as I felt a need for change and exploration. I am searching for a looser approach using color. Narrative research based sculpture appeals to me. "Lost and Found" was born during this workshop and I have wanted to get back to working in this manner ever since. Beginning in March 2020, I plan delve into an exploratory phase investigating this new clay body and method of working, which will be enhanced further by a residency at Buffalo Creek Arts Center in Nevada for the month of July 2020.
