EXPERIENCE & INFLUENCE

 

Throughout my art development I have practiced in many different mediums. I have

worked in, acrylic and watercolour paints, ink and graphite drawing, plaster sculpture, and

ultimately, ceramics and pottery.

 

I have many influences including the desire to create and the drive to understand and

appreciate all forms of art. As for artists who have influenced me, I have studied under

artists/teachers William Forrestall and Robin Peck, and I am currently studying under

artists/teachers Peter Thomas, Liz Demerson, and Chris Colwell. My favorite artist is

ceramicist/potter Lee-Horus Clark.
