I share my life with my beloved, Marty, my daughter, Charlotte, Charlotte's beloved, Jason, and their son Xander, two guinea pigs, a very spoiled cockatiel, a terrific cat and a chicken.
I want to bring joy to people.
I can't do much but I can take a lump of clay and fashion it with love and care into something that will perhaps ease someone's pain, bring a smile to their face and light up their eyes. I can craft a little sculpture that can transport someone to another world, another time, if just for a moment. I can tell a story.
I relish the feeling I get when I create something. It helps me feel accomplished and valuable.
Money is nice. Recognition is good. Passing on the love I feel through a little synthetic clump of clay and daub of paint is better
