The Yakima Valley and surrounding area is a growing hub for all types of artists. Many artists are seen here on YakimaArt.com but there are even more that have more detailed exposure of their craft and artistic process. Visit their websites from any of the Yakima Area Artist Links below.
Art has always been part of my life. I was immersed in childhood with my artist mother, collecting folk art with my husband, gardening, painting and now ceramic sculpture.

As a professional ceramic artist and art instructor at Yakima Valley College in Yakima, I have been exhibiting my ceramic sculpture for more than a decade and teaching nearly as long.

Wood art is my life. I am devoted to the use of traditional hand tools and carving techniques. I start with freshly cut trees, then study each log to determine its best use and the potential sculpture encased within.
I use local waste wood, that would be land-filled or burned, to create art that gives both visual and tactile pleasure.
