Artist is inspired by our journeys as human beings and the poetry, song, prose, and imagery that attempt to do them justice. Her current work displays heart symbols and stories the heart might tell. She creates both gift sized, smaller hearts that rattle when shaken and depict words and other symbolic inspirations as well as larger sculptural pieces that hold deeper emotions, thoughts, or questions. She also creates functional, whimsical bottles that might be used as vases, olive oil bottles, or cruets. All of these pieces have a “personality“to them with their gestural shapes and sizes. Her work incorporates her skill as a faux finisher where layers of glazes, slips, and texture combine to create wear or the look of the natural consequences of time.
