Art has always been a mainstay in my life from the time I was a child. I see beauty all around me and am compelled to create. I started working with wood and metal in primary school and moved on to making silver jewelry and ceramics in high school. I purchased my very first pottery wheel at the age of 16 and still use the same wheel today. In college I minored in art while majoring in human sciences. Most of my art courses were taken at LACC, including ceramics, drawing, design & lettering. Although I continued my education in medicine at University of California, I maintained my artistic roots. UC Davis has a fantastic art and ceramics studio for students, which I fully took advantage of, working mostly with wood making furniture.

These days I spend most of my artistic energy on creating with clay. I have a wonderful studio at my home on the Eastern shore of Skaneateles Lake, where I spend a great deal of time creating ceramic works. I often donate my art to charitable causes, give them as gifts, or display them in my home and office. I recently began exploring the art of painting as well as making music. Creativity is a gift that fuels our inspiration and makes us feel alive. Making time for my art is as important to me as breathing.
