Color has always been my passion whether I am making sculptures or pottery in clay, or painting in alcohol inks. In order to express my love of color, I formulate my own glazes which are then fired on my clay works to give them the desired effects. Alcohol inks provide me another avenue to introduce an array of color to a two dimensionsal form of art.
My feelings are externalized in the making of works of art that expresses my joy by using color and/or humor as a vehicle to enjoy the best parts of my day. I first experienced this joy of color in a class at the University of Montana with Rudy Audio, mixing the pigments on my pallette, realizing there are no limits to the experiences of color. Later, I found expression in the chemistry of glazes and texture working with clay.
