I am a woman of many interests. On any given day you will find me painting in my studio, sculpting little heads out of clay, throwing pots and bowls on the wheel or writing. I also sew and make art out of found objects. I think I must have ADHD because I jump from project to project. I never get bored and I feel one should learn something new everyday.

At the art group I am a member of, The Village artists, we had a plate painting day on March 8th.  This is a plate I made for my daughter for her birthday.  About eight of us had a wonderful time painting, glazing and designing the art work. I also had a fun time with my son, Jeff, in Chinatown.  He is finally out of the Navy after 6 and 1/2 years!!!

I believe cooking is an art and I am entering a contest tomorrow for St. Patrick's Day.  I am entering my Grandmother Irish Soda bread. Wish me luck, especially since I don't cook very much and my family think this fact is very comical.  I CAN cook I just don't LIKE to cook!!  I don't think I can mess up this recipe.   Happy St Patty's Day

Here is a birthday present for Camm my future son-in-law.  It is a rice bowl of my own design. Holes for chopsticks because I hear he can't eat Chinese food unless he has chopsticks.  Enjoy it Camm!
I also have a photo of a vessel with a lid, bread warmers that I made for x mas gifts and some of my mugs and bowls.
Here is my newest sculpture.  I call it "The Laugh", it was supposed to have a hand over the face but the clay became to hard to add it later.  I have been helping my mother who has been having back issues and the clay got away from me.  This is not fired or glazed yet and I will make another sculpture of my original design.
