About The Artist

Artist Statement

Wheel-thrown, high-fired porcelain Teapots, Jars, and more.
Paintings of landscapes, watercolor.
All of the above, I love creating.

Clay is an art medium that is truly limitless. It is both flexible and strong, capable of both abstract and realistic expression. Working with clay, the creative possibilities are endless. Throwing on the wheel, I feel the dynamic interaction between me and the clay. It is truly “centering”.

I work with Clay because like other Art mediums, it brings joy, hope, inspiration, and beauty to the world.


Born in San Diego, CA. in 1942.  I came to the Bay Area to attend college at the University of California, majoring in Math and Physical Education in the 60’s.  After graduation I became a tenured High School teacher for 9 years in San Bruno.  In 1975 i gave it all up to become a full-time ceramic artist. My first studio was at the Berkeley Potters Studio.   After 5 years of pottery and working on staff, I returned to Graduate school.  So, in 1985, I received my Masters in Fine Art (MFA) degree from San Jose State University. And, then I moved back to the North Bay in various places, and continued to do my Art for Galleries and Art Festivals and commissions and for myself.  i am so grateful to have taken the chance to become an artist.
