"I fell in love with clay when I was 10 years old. Since then I have found clay and sculpture to be a significant means of expression in my life. I translate emotions into a physical state and bring them to peoples' attention with beauty and elegance. I love and respect nature with its graceful lines, rhythmic movements and exquisite repetition of forms. I am always deeply satisfied when people see, feel, appreciate and enjoy the relationships to nature and movement in my works"
