I have attended a number of art colleges, including the University of Missouri, Kansas City Art institute, The Institute of Allende in San Miguel, MX (U of GTO,) and received my art degree from San Francisco State University. In 1969 I studied in the studio of Kansas City artist Benn Bunyar. I presently focus on porcelain and earthenware ceramics but I also combine clay forms with wood and other sculptural materials.

My cups and tableware are approached primarily as sculpture. They are all microwave and dishwasher safe and I don’t use lead or other harmful chemicals in my clays or glazes.

I enjoy working with earthenware, terra cotta, and native clays to explore earthenware fired jars and containers.

My influence for art is directly connected to my love of the outdoors. whether it’s camping, hiking the Cascade foothills, or processing milk weed seed to enhance Monarch Butterfly populations in Cowiche Canyon.

I believe that capturing the essence of a unique character or object is like capturing the concept of a useful cup or bowl… unique and it’s success is gauged by an intangible response to clay.
