My work is a reflection of life. The pieces are memories of people, places and things I have known. In the small faces I can see members of my family, people I once knew, and even myself. The work tends to be whimsical with a slightly dark under current. My sculptural forms are hand built using low-fire clay. Which is why no two figures will ever be exactly the same. The surfaces are decorated with stamped words and a variety of finishes, including oxides, under glaze, and glaze. My art is collected both nationally and internationally. It's in the permanent collection of the Cafesjian Center for the Arts, Armenia. I've shown my work at SDC London, England and in 2008 I was commissioned to paint Pop Art inspired murals at the Venue in London, England. I've shown work in numerous galleries including the Clay Studio, Philadelphia, PA, the Florida Craftsmen, St Petersburg, FL, and the Piedmont Craftsmen, Winston-Salem, NC. My sculptural work has appeared in the publications: Ceramics Ireland, Art Doll Quarterly
I have earned two separate Master's degrees in Ceramics and Printmaking/Painting from the University of Miami. Prior to that I earned a Summa Cum Laude BFA in Graphic Design with a minor in Art History and Ceramics.
Aside from being an artist, I am a Professor of Art and Design at Palm Beach State College in Lake Worth, Florida
