She has been part of several group exhibitions within California and held her first solo exhibition earlier this year.
She explains her creative process below.
"I use clay to throw spherical parts on the wheel which I later assemble into biomorphic shapes. Some forms employ surface treatments such as slip trailing, sprigging and resist carving techniques to create unique patterned surfaces. Other forms become canvasses for an exploration of carved imagery and a juxtaposition of organic shapes contrasted with sharp geometric designs. These shapes and designs travel rhythmically over and around the voluminous forms inviting touch and an investigation of the surface. Many of these pieces are created while listening to or referencing musical works that I am interested in."
