Artist’s Statement
“I’ve always struggled with my artist statements. Should I be so bold as to speak about the very personal nature of my work or stay within my safe public narrative? My personal story is too personal and does too good of a job demystifying the work, while the public truth falls short of the essence of what drives me. I reveal some of the layers of meaning – but never all – and the layers change depending on who’s listening and what’s happening in my life at the moment.”

“One layer that I am aware of is that of growing older in a culture that worships youth and struggles with aging. As I grow older, I am increasingly aware of this issue and find that I have, unfortunately, bought into this American value. I am a product of my culture; I don’t want to get old. I watch lines appear on faces and hair turn gray on friends and family (me, too), for instance, and am compelled to reflect this onto clay.”One layer that I am aware of is that of growing older in a culture that worships youth and struggles with aging.
