Artist Statement

I have been an artist for as long as I can remember; memories of cutting, bending and building as a child have matured into a career of creating. Passionate about working with clay to build abstract forms and installations that reflect the beauty of the natural world, my favorite days are ones where I am splattered with clay and working in the studio all day long. Outside the studio, I can often be found exploring the forests, mountains or tide pools near my California studio for inspiration, usually with a collection of bones, rocks and wood in my pockets. My exploration of the natural world is referenced throughout my work. I have a passion for adventure and travel often finding inspiration through my exploration. A natural teacher and philanthropist, I share my creativity with students at my home studio and abroad.
