As a child, I was always interested in art, but it was not until I retired from Mare Island Naval Shipyard in 1994, where I worked as a Machined Parts Inspector, that I really embraced my art.
As a student at Solano Community College, I enrolled in numerous art classes. Then in 1996, I discovered clay. I remember walking by the clay studio where the instructor was working on a clay sculpture, and I knew immediately that was what I wanted to do. This was the beginning of my love affair with clay.
I enrolled in almost all the clay classes which included pottery wheel classes. Although my favorite were the sculpture classes.
In recent years, I’ve become interested in jewelry design, which I truly love. I love working with natural stones.
My work has been exhibited in the Fairfield Visual Arts Association Juried Art Show and the Solano Community College Gallery in Davis,
