architectural ceramics. Her work possesses a raw, textural quality, with the clay encompassed in a translucent, earthy glaze.

grids and motifs capture the relentless energy, complexity, and contradictions that pulse through our contemporary society.

University in 1994. She has lived and maintained a studio in San Antonio, Texas since 1998.
