Welcome to Grandview Studio's New Website! We are a work in progress. Please visit often as we anticipate adding significantly to our online portfolio and offerings. If you have any questions or would like to arrange for commissioned work or ceramics lessons, please take a moment to drop us a line.
I specialize in ceramics, oil painting, and illustration. My methodology in ceramics is straightforward, where landscape imagery is hand painted in monotones on bisque fired porcelain, and at times, stoneware. Pieces are then glazed and fired again.
Earth and clay are the potters playground. Each piece is rendered unique by a potters style, and even, their own hands. My children love my thumb print mugs because the shape of my thumb fits perfectly in their hands (incidentally, also equally unique and made from scratch).
My work often incorporates life experiences including time spent abroad. I am a lifetime educator and have taught studio arts in an eclectic breadth of media, including workshops in life size sculpture, ceramics, and murals; while also facilitating art initiatives in inner city schools in and around NY.
