Spirit speaks through clay. Clay is Mother Earth spending her energy within and through those who agree to take this journey with it.
Clay has taught me the need to be forgiving, to let go of that which is broken and to accept flaws. I have learned the need to center myself, be patient and to listen to the clay as we work together.
I spent the first 40 years of my life living on a farm and now, as I live in a suburb of St. Paul, MN, I find that clay helps keep me connected to the earth.
My pieces are inspired by nature, sometimes incorporating leaves and grasses to imprint their beauty into the clay.
