For a long time, I wrestled with the question of why do I do this. What is the importance of my work? Creating art is not a choice for me. There is some primal drive, some need, something I came into the world to do. While working in my studio I am connected to my Source, peaceful and balanced. In many ways, my studio is my chapel. Making my sculptures is a spiritual practice. Throwing clay on the wheel is a meditation. You can not center your clay if you are not centered yourself. Working in the studio, time disappears, as does the rest of the world. It is about focusing on NOW. It is also a lot of fun...
