I have no formal education in art, but my life has pretty much embraced the creative arts - as a musician and language arts teacher. My first foray into art was as a ceramic artist. Years later when I met my late husband, Mitch Lyons, I learned his clayprinting technique. In the studio, his creativity and curiosity inspired me and opened my eyes to a whole new world of clay.
My artwork is a reflection of my own journey through changes that have impacted my life. Out of sorrow, the joy of living has made itself known to me. A return to the things I value and playful spontaneity are all a part of what it has meant to return to my authentic self, allowing me to claim my best life.
