“Art has given me great satisfaction and a sense of well being since I was a child. My first attempts at drawing and painting were to draw things exactly as they appeared to me. Later I discovered clay—The excitement of building—adding, taking away, pushing; a live thing under my fingers.

If I can give someone else that sense of accomplishment, of constant discovery, new areas to explore and discover with whatever materials they choose to work with, I will feel a sense of satisfaction. To me art is for everyone. Beauty can be seen anytime, anywhere, however fleeting the moment; if the senses are educated and open to absorb.” – Cornelia Cole, 1976
