I have been creating my beautiful Nerikome Artwork since 1989.

Taught and inspired by Jane Peiser from Penland NC, I am constantly experimenting with color and pattern.  

My hard earned ease with this process results in work that is immediate, fluid and dynamic.


My designs explore the tension of motion and color within the confines of rigid forms.

                    “Notice what you notice” 

We all notice different things. For me it is color and pattern. They are inseparable at the heart of all my Artwork.

The foundation of my ‘Style’, is pattern. Not simply the patterns of North America, but the pattern sense of other cultures. The joyful exuberance of African, Indian, Latin and Islamic patterns influences my work in subtle but important ways. 

My process is not be familiar as there are few colored porcelain Artists.I try to increase these numbers by teaching this process in live and virtual workshops.

I have a commitment to advancing knowledge in this colorful area of the pottery world.
