I began making pots and entered psychotherapy almost simultaneously in Atlanta, GA back in 1972. Both mediums have a central dynamic in my life. They have both taught me the importance of self-discipline, keeping commitments, listening to myself, and finding my own voice through life’s struggles, obstacles, and its many hard lessons.
Over the duration of my career as a potter, a teacher, a psychotherapist, and then again as a potter, I have navigated my road through life by learning the lessons of success and failure from making things, teaching and learning from others.
My work in pottery is an expression of my journey, my experiences, and what I am and what I value. I value sensitivity, beauty, compassion, integrity, and I attempt to express these values in my work.
I love a beautiful form, a lovely glaze, and lively brush stroke. My art is inspired by a meeting of the minds and the connection to others.
