About

As a visual artist, I value beauty that brings about well-being. Much of my work arises from merging my love for sculpting and painting the human form with my need for making things that feel good to use in daily living.

I enjoy working with people to make custom pieces, especially sculpting portraits, figures, and functional objects. The more challenging and unusual, the better! Do you have an idea for a piece? Someone you want sculpted into a statue or piece of pottery? Check in with me about it, let's materialize it.

In 2007 I recieved my BFA from California College of Arts and Crafts with an individualized major in sculpture, painting, and photography. After college I took a 10 day silent vipassana meditation course that brought about a major wholesome transformation, and continues to influence my work as a human being…

After college I took a 10 day silent vipassana meditation course that brought about a major wholesome transformation, and continues to influence my work as a human being and artist.

I began Teaching ceramics, excited about educating others about the fine art potentials of clay, yet some of my students only wanted to learn the wheel. I learned to throw pots so that I could teach them, and I got hooked! I currently teach at Montlake Community Center, and maintain my studio practice at the ceramics co-op Florentine Clayworks.

The majority of the ceramic work I produce is made from recycled clay. I salvage scraps and dried out blocks from various studios that otherwise would be tossing good clay into the dump. By recycling this abandoned clay, I am able to build a relationship with it while I'm mixing and wedging it, so that I get to know it very well before I even start to make anything with it. I mix most of my glazes from scratch, they are food, microwave and dishwasher safe.
