I started sculpting when I was about two. According to my mom, I would steal the gray, sticky insulation caulk from windows, and play with it. I've always had hungry fingers and I'm admittedly a tactile addict.

Biology and art were my passions growing up, and still are. For a while in college I toyed with the idea of science illustration, but was discouraged when I figured out the life of the 19th century taxonomist was not realistic in this century. No HMS Beagle for me. I found Ceramics my senior year, and it won the contest with organic chem.

I got my MFA while climbing trees to reach the best grapefruit in Tempe, AZ, and learning how to make really great glazes for my work.

So if my prices seem a little on the high side, that's why. Can't let them down! :T

My biology foundered for a while, but is creeping back into my life through my new obsession with organic gardening. My childhood spent catching bugs in my mom's garden was well spent. Now I want chickens. I want a goat. Someday. For now I'll just sculpt the animals I like.

I make political work. I try to read a lot. I feel all my work comes from the same place, really. I care a whole, whole lot for the world around me and I want the best for the future of our people (great and small) and our planet. But, I try not to take anything tooooo seriously. ;P
