About the Artist
My latest ceramic series, Hep Cat Tails of the Strange, is meant to cause a visceral response about current events and how they affect women across the globe. Often portrayed as femme fatales, warriors, goddesses, or ocean and earth dwellers, my “girls” have a silent strength behind eyes that have seen enough.
Exposing injustices by pushing boundaries in my current work should insight conversations so that we, as a society, can engage and learn to eradicate atrocious behaviors. Art, music, theater, and journalism can lead the way in such discussions.
I received my BFA in Studio Art from SWTSU in 1992 with a concentration in ceramic technology. I continue to work in clay and have added assemblage processes to both my ceramic and found object pieces.
