"Ceramics has given me a vision; I will become a world-class ceramic artist. This goal has taught me many valuable life lessons. I have discovered that I do my best work when I relax and remember not to get so tight and not to worry about the little things; they will work themselves out as I focus on the bigger picture.

I don't believe I will ever stop pushing myself to be better, so there will never be a finish line to cross. I look forward to the joy and excitement of opening night at a gallery. It is always amazing to see the look on other people's faces when they see your art or how it is made. I am excited for future art competitions and the further inspiration and skill that await me as I continue to turn hunks of clay into pieces of fine art."
