Artist Statement
As an 12 year resident of Mt. Hood wilderness rim, I enjoy working with natural elements in my design and use of color. I strive to integrate the rich biodiversity of the natural world around me into my pieces. I also enjoy a wide variety of styles and forms, some functional, some architectural, and some sculptural. My work reflects a deep respect for nature and all the beauty that I strive to protect.
Biography
I have studied for 5 years under the supervision of Joe Davis and Natalie Warrens. I have also worked in workshops with Richard Rowland, Richard Brandt, Brad Schweiger, and Lorna Deane. I am currently a member of the Gresham Arts Council, as well as the Oregon Potters Association. I look forward to many more years both as a potter, and a producer of fine art.
