The Artist








Ceramics is my love, second only to my children and grandchildren. After a career in finance, I moved to Humboldt County in 2009 to be near my family. Since that time I have been creating hand carved and hand painted functional ceramics. Porcelain is my canvas. I combine my love of painting and ceramics to create my designs. I work in the style known as “sgraffito”, derived from an Italian word for scratching or carving through colored clay (slip) that I have brushed on the piece. Each piece is unique, carved freehand. My pieces are designed to be functional art, beautiful, yet durable enough to use every day.
