I was that sweaty kid found climbing a tree or baiting my own hook.  I played with bugs under the porch, built forts in the piney woods of South Arkansas, and only suffered the indoors if Grandma would let me make things.  I always loved the smell of dirt, and fell hard for ceramics in High School.  But eventually I grew up and got a "real job".  
After a great ride on Austin's high-tech wave I am now a self-employed artist, certified dive-master, and busy grandmother of four.  Once again, I am filthy almost every day, running my own business from my home studio.
My unique moniker comes from the many times I've been photographed in colorful wet-suits, which the grand-kids happily point out, "It's the Granny-Fish!".  The name stuck.
Mostly self-taught, I read, study videos, and occasionally seek out training with great clay sculptors.  I've been at it this way for about a decade.
Treetop views or drifting in the water-column slow my pulse and free my mind.  The colors and themes I use lean into those resonant experience.  My work explores the often absurd contrast between the apparent and the intrinsic, telling stories about dreams, wishes, and relationships.
