Handcrafted Quality

ABOUT THE ARTIST

I like to call my pieces “DIVINE INSPIRATIONS IN CLAY”.  My journey into the art world started in 2005.  Prior to this time, I had no art experience at all.  I was moved by a strong urge to create in the physical form through a medium working with my hands.  I was drawn to clay because of the tactile feel.   Professionally I am  an Acupuncturist and Herbalist in Chinese Medicine.  Interaction with my patients has created a memory in my hands that allows these pieces to be created spontaneously via hand building.     

Over the past 13 years the work has grown and changed.  Masks are still my favorite pieces to produce.  Vases are relatively new to emerge.
