Portfolio Categories: Ceramics.

I am a ceramic artist, making both functional work and sculpture. Art has been my life since childhood, first in France where I was born, then in the States. Aside from an occasional workshop I am self-taught, learning from looking at work in museums and galleries, especially work done by artists of other cultures or of other times. I have also been influenced by a number of artists in my family. I have a home studio where I spend many hours each week. Until a few years ago I taught art full-time at the high school and college level. I do not use a wheel for my functional ware, preferring to build everything by hand to create irregularities that add interesting effects. I use mid-range stoneware and glazes and sometimes terracotta for sculpture. I have had numerous group and solo exhibitions of ceramics, sculptures and works on paper in the States, France, the former Soviet Union and China. I am currently represented in several galleries in Connecticut.
