Artist Statement

My ceramic works are primarily hand-constructed coil or slab works featuring sculpted or graphic embellishments. My paper constructions are created using laminated layering of folded paper (unrelated to quilling or origami techniques) and cut or folded to create approximate 11x14 inch by 3/4 in thickness/textured canvas-like compositions. Subject often projects abstraction with relevant visual hints often referenced by the work's title.
