"The process of clay work creation involves the intense and powerful tactile experience of touch. The touch in clay work enables the creator to form a nonverbal language or communication, through which his or her mental realm and emotional life can be expressed." (Sholt & Gavron, 2006)

"My work is inspired by the natural world. I love to create things that look like they were found in a forest or dug up in a desert. The majority of my work is utilitarian pottery that is both practical and functional, although, from time to time; I do enjoy making ceramic jewelry.

I spent 7 years working in high fire reduction at Seward Park Clay Studio, however, in late 2020 I shifted my focus to working in Cone 6 oxidation out of my home studio. The never ending process of learning and growing through this art form still exhilarates me time and time again."
