"I have had so many wonderful artist teachers! Special thanks to Ron Roy, Roger Kerslake and Tim deRose of Ontario, Canada, for their guidance with clay and glazes. To Gary Clarien of Palo Alto, for continued help with ceramics, especially low-fire and raku. To Jennifer Almodova of Half Moon Bay, infinite thanks for her guidance with watercolors."
Recent work includes watercolor paintings honoring the Five Elements and the way in which they dance with one another. In addition are depictions of Portals: those mysterious doorways between dimensions that one encounters from time to time…
