Ever since I was a child, I've been creating. Whether it's been painting or pottery, printmaking or photography, crafting or cooking, I've always had a need to try and make beautiful things. I love to experiment and to explore new materials and ideas. From my students brilliantly crafted artwork to the glorious sunsets of Block Island, I'm always observing my surroundings and my surroundings are always influencing my work. I'm am grateful to this island and the people who live here, they are my inspiration.
