It took 40 years for me to finally sink my hands into clay, despite a lifetime fascination and intense interest in figurative sculpture. Throughout childhood, I pursued many different types of artistic expression from visual arts to music, and studied anatomy with an interest in one day becoming a surgeon. Upon completion of college, I pursued a traditional career path in Silicon Valley, yet the need for creative expression persisted and grew.
Thus began an intensive process of self-education, which included numerous workshops and university art and design classes as well as study with contemporary masters including Stanley Bleifeld, Eugene Daub, Simon Kogan, Kirsten Kokkin, Tuck Langland, Bruno Lucchesi, Richard MacDonald, Vala Ola, and several others.
While continuing to work and raise two children, I have spent over fifteen years passionately and tirelessly creating sculpture. I exhibit work in various shows and galleries, and complete private commissions. I have been a member of the National Sculpture Society since 1997.
