Clay Sculpture



I decided to go to Delta College to work on my secondary education after my children were in high school. I graduated with a BA in Art in 1980 from CSU Sacramento, and then, because I fell in love with the medium, took graduate work in clay sculpture at UC Davis and CSU Stanislaus.


Portrait sculpture and creating animal forms, often with a bit of whimsy, became my focus. I have work on public view at Mark Twain Medical Center, and the library in Arnold, as well as in Stockton.


My husband and I moved from Stockton to Murphys about 20 years ago. I love living here in the hills, working on my clay pieces and also making quilts.


Teaching clay sculpture classes at Quyle's Kilns in Murphys during the past four summers, where I've met many wonderful people, has become one of my joys..
