I am both a ceramic artist and a painted paper collage artist. My work can at times be abstract or more literal including landscapes, botanical studies, birds and other animals.

Using clay I developed a method of creating wall sculptures depicting nature themes. As a collage artist I work with acrylic plaint randomly painting on paper and allowing the marks to direct me often resulting in landscapes as well abstract designs.
