My polymer clay sculptures are filled with the sensation of story. When people engage with my work I am often asked “What is this from?” because my work seems like it’s derived from fables or myths. But soon they realize the stories are all fresh and just a little off kilter.

I use the ancient technique of millefiori. I have created my own form of this technique with polymer clay so I can create my pallet of pictures which cover all my pieces. Just as stories give the feeling of impending surprise my work holds many hidden treasures.
