Art and art making is such a large part of my identity. I identified with the idea that I couldn’t do anything else. It is not that I am incapable of doing other things, but I am driven to create art. As an art teacher I had to be versed in many aspects of making art. I have always been obsessed with good design and what makes a good design. I probably lean slightly more to three-dimensional art making, although I do like painting and printmaking. Currently I am working in clay sculpture and jewelry making. My art Frequently revolves around animals when I work in clay. In jewelry my focus is decorative adornment. My work is more fun than serious. There is enough misery in this world without my art celebrating the dark side.
