Crouching




In college I was a fine arts major with a double emphasis in ceramic sculpture and oil painting.�I studied from some modern masters (Bob Arneson - ceramics; Manual Neri -sculpture and Roy DeForest - oil painting, among others).�When I graduated, and wanted to live on my own and begin my adult life, I realized that no one was beating down my parent’s door looking for a fine artist.�Yearning to grow up, I took the first job that accepted college graduates and didn’t care what their major was, and I began my illustrious career…in insurance.
For many years I solely invested my time and energy in my corporate career.
In the 90’s, after my husband and I came to Las Vegas, I fell in with some potters and learned to throw clay and started hand-building with clay again.�� My interest and experience grew and I started investing in my own equipment to make clay art.�Almost 30 years after graduating from college, I have my own studio with the equipment I need to make my work, and am showing my work in art shows, galleries and other venues.�
The work that I principally make is ceramic, although I also can work in other mediums.�I have focused on the raku firing process most recently, because it is so immediate, exciting and surprising.�But I have also worked on custom decorated tile projects and other decorative ceramic works.�I really enjoy the decorative aspect of the work, whether it’s the rich, lustrous or earthly surfaces of the raku pieces or the painterly qualities of some of the other decorated surfaces I have done.�
