I love the slow, deliberate process of hand-building. Texture usually inspires me—an air vent, a door mat, beach stones, a kimono, all have been inspirations. I often work in series, but each piece is unique. I'm a Washington DC native who works across the river in Arlington VA at the Lee Arts Center ceramics studio.

Introduced to ceramics at Bennington College in the late 60s, I returned to clay only once during a forty year career in the arts. But in 2014, after retiring from the contemporary art exhibitions business, I turned to ceramics in earnest. Since then, my work has been selected for a solo show and included in several exhibitions, and I’ve been invited to participate in major craft shows.
