I am an artist working with sculpture, drawing-painting, and jewelry making. I was raised on Long Island, NY and completed my BFA degree at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY and MFA/Education at C. W. Post University. Most of my work is in clay. I begin with slabs and then incorporate wheel work. I decorate slabs with lace and stamped patterns. I also like to draw either directly into the clay surface or with oxides and glazes. All platters and pottery are dinnerware and dishwasher safe.
The ceramic pendant jewelry pieces are all originally sculpted with an eclectic blend of mother of pearl, silver, and glass. Each piece is approached with a reverence for nature, capturing the many subtleties found in the natural world. Presently, I am teaching public school art and producing work in my home studio located on Long Island.
