My art dolls are a vessel that I can place my emotions into and a looking glass for the viewer. My chosen medium is clay. I love the tactile nature of the clay and the feeling of using my hands to form the ideas from my brain and heart. My pieces often utilize found objects with the clay. I believe these found objects can lend a tangible bit of our shared human existence to my artwork.
My story is one of the major influences in my artwork. I have struggled through the physical adversity of Osteo-Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, and the feelings of despair that accompanied it. At this point in my journey I am better than I have ever been, and my art reflects the joy and healing that I’ve been blessed with.
