I have been working in the field of visual art since 1996 when I began my undergraduate fine arts education at the University of Tennessee at Martin. I was initially a painting student; having spent my youth focused in 2-D discipline, but became enamored with clay immediately upon contact. 

In the beginning, my emphasis was on craft, being more interested in what the clay had to say, than what I had to say with the material. My focus has changed considerably over time and recently, I have been using clay to explore questions and issues that lay beyond the materiality and craft of the studio.
