Juror's Comment:  "Grounded and resilent, the figure is naked but not exposed. The piece exemplifies a nuanced and sophisticated exploration of the female form. A scupture to spend time with."

Artist's Statement

My work explores form and surface. I hand build sculptural ceramic pieces in an expressive style. Many of my works are figurative, but even those that are not often feel gestural and voluptuous. I have a passion for the material and the handbuilding process. I work intuitively while creating pieces, responding to the form as it emerges.
I often explore tensions – historic vs modern, inner vs outer, visible vs hidden and thus contrasts are evident in my work – elegant forms with rough, rustic surfaces.

In addition to ceramic work, I paint with mixed media on Mylar. This work is also expressive and gestural, often figurative.
