My favorite medium is clay. I dream of a situation where I could wake up, play with clay all day, go to bed and then do it
again the next day. I find my inspiration from nature, the news, and my family. Always a little edgy, eclectic and and left of

We each have our daily commitments and to get away from this grind, we access our creativity
and find an artistic outlet to express ourselves. This is where the play, the inner joy is released.
We hope the viewer picks up this sense of play in each artist's work. The individual styles
come from the distinct creativity of each artist.
We are happy to present this body of work for your visual enjoyment.
