As a potter and painter, I find great expression using the Maiolica glazing technique, which allows me to create strong forms with cheerful and spontaneous surface design. My love of plants, gardens and the simple yet intricate forms of nature inspire me. By this process, I am able to make connections between myself, my life, the natural world and those who appreciate my work. The vibrant color and early drawings of artists like Picasso, VanGogh and Matisse as well as the traditional Islamic, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese tin-glazed pottery, continue to guide and influence my work.
