Her current work is concerned with depth, movement, shadows and the mystery of what lies beneath the surface. The imagery can mean many things: change, new beginnings, joy, freedom; it is the experience that the viewer brings to the work that may shape what is seen and felt. Nature is a point of reference. As the seasons change, so do the colors and design of the work.
The pieces are made from high-fired white stoneware. To create texture, slips and multiple layers of glaze are added.
Her work has been influenced by the California coast where she was born, and by her father, an excellent potter who encouraged and supported her.
