I have always loved and made art. I have a strong memory as a child of making an entire set of dishes from a fabulous patch of mud next to my house. Over the years I have worked in many artistic mediums, but pottery is the one I am drawn to the most. I love the organic nature of claywork and I am inspired by the natural world and the colors of the Pacific Northwest. I strive to create unique stoneware and porcelain pieces that are functional and decorative and that connect with others.
