Artist Statement

I am interested in the function of forms and the decorative surface that they lend themselves to.  I approach new ideas as a series of work and an exploration of proportion, texture, color and intended use.  My inspiration is drawn from the foods I enjoy cooking and serving, my surrounding environment, Chinese ceramics and forms found in nature.
