This image is a Show and Tell of some of my Illustrations in Clay & Porcelain. I am now conducting musical ceramic workshops for children, bringing me such joy. The text explains my newest teaching of children in workshops devoted to sharing my favorite ceramic techniques. We’ll be listening to Jazz and Classical international music, with instrumental soloists, accompanied by orchestras and bands. Imagine our classes with this music played softly in the background for inspiration and focus, while hands are creating. Children will learn the unique sounds of the musical instruments as they work, and perhaps decide to study a favorite instrument one day.

As a singer in a Boston area Swing Band, I specialize in the lovely songs by Irving Berlin and the brothers George and Ira Gershwin, and also sing in the soprano section of the Masterworks Chorale, Boston. You’ll find me sketching at live concerts of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Boston Pops, and other orchestras and bands, all inspiring my work.
