"Rhea Silva" - Raku Sculpted Wall Hanging - 2016

Artist Statement

My Pennsylvania Dutch and American Indian heritage combines to create a sense of history and a deep instinctive understanding of the land and the natural environment. This translates to a love that can be seen in the artwork, whether it is oils, watercolor, pen and ink illustration, or clay. All senses are involved in the creation of the finished piece. No matter what medium is used, it must reflect and enhance the nature of each piece to capture the soul, personality, and innate spark of the subject matter.
