At this time of my life, I take great pleasure in creating art since my retirement from teaching in 2006. I have created a series of clay torsos that challenged me tremendously to deal with feelings; and the surface texture and imagery.  My purpose is to evoke awareness of the subject. Bringing the viewer to feel and understand the particular situation depicted in the work of art is definitely a challenge. My bird sculptures are quite whimsical compared to the torsos, and are another avenue to express the human condition and the challenge of clay construction. I have also begun a series of slab constructed  saints, again enjoying the process of clay and the individuality of each sculpture. The amazing human form has always intrigued me and it gives me great pleasure to share my work
