Artist Statement

The preservation of a disappearing landscape through imagery on ceramics is the reason I create. Inspired conceptually by the regionalist painters of the early 20th century who sought to document the rural landscapes of America, I see myself as a modern Regionalist working with clay. I make pottery, murals, and sculpture decorated with the landscapes, flora, and fauna of our native habitats. My hope is that the daily use and viewing of the work will be a gentle reminder to the public of the vanishing natural world around us.
