Handmade paper-thin polymer clay sheets in a plethora of color and pattern combinations, collaged on wood to create the subject matter in each painting. Textured acrylic paints are used in the negative spaces to complement the clay.
“Raised in Savannah, Georgia, I have lived mostly in the South. I received an MFA from the University of Georgia in ceramics and have spent half of my art years as a potter. Although I am formally trained in ceramics, I am totally self-taught in polymer clay. My work is made in a place of happiness. This has always been my most accurate truth. The inspiration is very simple. I use animals to tell the stories of both ordinary and special human events from Sunday dinner to Mardi Gras.”
