Sculpting in clay and bronze is a joyous hands-on  experience. I have done one-of-a-kind dragons, unicorns, fairies, mermaids, strange creatures and other flights of my fancy like the 'Make Your Own Monster Kit'. I bring the same creativity to my art that you will discover in my speculative writing.

The ceramic skulls are all original, too-much-fun creations of the good, bad, amusing and the impossible.

The ceramic jewelry  includes earrings, necklaces, pins, bracelets, barrettes, string ties, and more. Each original piece is finished with exciting glazes in a mixture of colors and patterns. 

While taking theater at Fullerton College, I made masks in the advanced makeup class and realized how little I knew about sculpting. This led to the first of many sculpture and ceramic classes at Fullerton College where I began making ceramic masks. I continued my studies at CSULB, Chaffee College, enjoyed a summer experience at UCF and a raku class at Laguna Beach on the Art Festival grounds.

Of all the joys from my art adventures the most rewarding was the many years of 'Clay Play' where I, my husband,  also a sculptor, and other talented artist friends, helped hundreds of children experience the creativity each of us are born with. We offered these free Clay Play days at Costa Mesa's 'Arts on the Green', the city of Placentia's 'Celebration of the Arts', at the Children's Museum of La Habra, and the city of Fontana's '4th of July' celebration. I was proud to be on Hal Pastorius' 'Imaginarium' committee along with Dixie Shaw as part of the 'Imagination Celebration' sponsored by the John F Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

I am so proud of the invitational 'Three Generation, One Family Art Show' where my husband, 3 of my daughters and my grandson all showed our work.

Another joy was my art displays at the libraries at Fullerton, Placentia and Yorba Linda, all in California. I was an invited artist for 'A Night in Fullerton' at the Hunt Library.

I founded a non-profit artists group, 'Artists Helping Artists', which among other activities,
offered juried art shows and gave scholarships to local high school students. We had some wonderful guest speakers. My favorite is Hal Pastorius whom I met during the Imagination Celebration. Hal has several wonderful sculptures displayed as part of the 'Arts in Public Places' in the city of Brea, CA .
