She uses clay as a medium to sculpt personal but open-ended narratives about women’s lives that often veer into the fantastical, whimsical and even humorous, drawing on popular culture and fairy-tale imagery.  Her work has been seen around Cleveland at galleries such as the former William Busta Gallery., as well as in Columbus, Philadelphia, Atlanta, and Banff, Alberta. Show runs through 3.6.2016.  (Image Above)
