Art inspires ART. A lot of my work comes from a full life of doing, looking, and teaching ART. Art studios, Art classrooms, Art galleries, and Art exhibits pop up often in my clay drawings. "Gallery
Study", a slab wall piece, holds its very own little abstract art show complete with patrons. Are they looking at Art or at Us?
