My creative process is dynamic and I see inspiration in almost everything around me. 

 

A gingko leaf pressed into the clay leaves an impression that becomes a ballerina's tutu.

A basketball creating curves and extra texture.  A stamp plays repeat for a wonderful pattern. 

Here's the fun that takes place at the studio. 

I truly love how clay can become almost anything.

I Love to Play In The Clay and make Art for Everyday Life!
