The Healer Ceramic - 8" in height. $200 I created this piece over the past two weeks while in seclusion/quarantine, as most of us are. I have many nurses in my family, and lots of family in New York, including New York City. My cousin Lee told me of the powerful feeling of hearing the applause every single night at 7:00 PM for the doctors, nurses, and other people on the front lines. He says that every night it gets louder.
The face of this woman came out easily, and so did her story...She has just come off a very long shift.
This piece is for the healers in all of us, but especially those working so hard and so tirelessly to help those so sick in this pandemic.

I am currently studying with master sculptor Deborah Bridges in Grass Valley, California.
I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001, and currently have Primary Progressive MS, which makes walking difficult. A lot of my work centers around the creation of movement and space - going from dancing and being very active - to learning how to express motion and mobility in other ways. I am a sculptor and painter, and my work really focuses on expressing the motion within emotion. Clay takes me back to my dance years, as it allows me to not only create the image but feel it while I create. I’ve not felt this close to my true self since dance! With words, poems and scratches I work my paintings with layers upon layers of color and images to produce a field of motion. So much is packed into each piece that they are like autobiographical pieces that I can release, knowing that I am saying what I can say in the only way I truly know how.
