Insects inspire me to create beauty and push the means of my clay.  I am intrigued by the intricacy in small creatures and overwhelmed by the sheer numbers. My work is constantly evolving and taking new shapes, this is part of the process of my nature inspired work.

This is a blog I am going to constantly be updating and getting accustomed to, please by all means tell me what you think.  I would love to have a conversation about my work or of any sort with you.
