I am inspired by characters, stories and childhood. I work with a white clay and
the work is fired twice to 1100 degrees; oxides are rubbed on and off to emphasize texture.
I grew up in Botswana and was fascinated by women making art and being creative.
I drew patterns in the earth as a child and now I make marks in clay using found objects to
create texture and pattern. My Italian mother also influenced me with her decorative style
and love of the ornate.
