Museum Gallery: August 5, 2021-August 29, 2021

I was born in 1941 in Birmingham, Alabama. Creating art reminds me of my childhood when we would make up plays and do circus performances for the neighborhood. I loved sitting outside with my neighborhood buddies at night watching the fireflies and telling the most fabulous and exciting stories. Our imagination had no boundaries.

When I become immersed in creating a piece, the excitement of the story unfolding before my eyes reminds me of the magic of those firefly nights.

Working in clay brings out memories and feelings that I love to express in my work. The clay pieces are finished with encaustic, which adds depth and an aged feeling. Each of my sculptures has a story that has unfolded for me, as I created the piece.
