My sculptures reflect my love of nature and travel.
I was born and raised in Seattle, later traveling and living various places nationally and internationally. For the last 20 years I have been residing here in Columbia City.
About 25 years ago I began working with clay. Now as I continue developing my ceramic sculptures, I landscape gardens as well. Both of these forms of art influence each other.
All pieces are low-fire with various surface treatments ranging from sawdust firing to glazes and underglazes. Most are designed to be in the garden, on a deck or patio, but most are also happy indoors. In fact most should be inside during the cold winter months.
Some of my ceramic pieces have a painterly surface treatment which I love doing and recently this interest has moved to canvas, wood, and mosaics. My sculptures and paintings should be considered as indoor or outdoor art.
