Artist Statement
As an 18 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.
I have studied for 15 years under the supervision of Joe Davis and Natalie Warrens and an additional year with John Hasegawa. I have also worked in workshops with Richard Rowland, Richard Brandt, Brad Schweiger, Lorna Deane, Deb Scwartzkopf, Stephanie Burton and Christy Lombard. 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.

Description of your classes you offer
I offer functional and sculptural designs, emphasizing hand-building, pinch pots, coil pots, and slab pieces. I work primarily with cone 10 clays and the cone 6 clays and glazes as well. Beginning May of 2021, I will have my studio up and running at home. I also work with cone 10 clay and woodfire them. My focus on classes will be either functional or sculptural in design.
