My formal art training began with figure drawing. I immediately fell in love with gesture studies. They are about line and immediacy; the quick, precise mothion of your hand honing in, finding the nuances that make your drawing look like the subject. When it's right, the whole drawing comes alive. I bring that sensibility to my clay work, beginning with a quick gesture in clay. Slowly, the gesture is refined, paying particular attention to the subleties that animate the piece.
