" Between the moment of seeing something and the sense we then make of it lies a place of questioning. For me it is the most alive place in our consciousness, bringing the unconscious to life through processes of emotional recognition and rationalizing our references. My work takes the energy of polarities, formal contradictions, impacts and merging as the beginning of a journey to this place.

Inspiration comes from many sources - geometry in the western Mystical Tradition, Vajrayana Buddhism, the uplifting quality of wild and remote landscapes, ancient traditions that revere the land and the Earth's wisdom, among others.

My ceramics have received awards and are in public collections and museums in U.S.A, Europe and the Far East . Exhibitions have been held worldwide; Britain , the U.S.A. , Europe, the Middle East, Japan , Korea , Taiwan and New Zealand , and featured in books and other publications. I have taught in Higher Education and offered projects to schools and to adults and children with special needs and physical and sensory disabilities.

After 10 years of not making ceramics I am returning with new questions and approaches."
