SculptureExhibitions

I am a ceramic artist living in Yakima, Washington. My work is primarily abstract and sculptural. I am influenced by plant life, especially fruit and exotic and aquatic plants.

I show my work regularly in galleries in Central Washington as well as in exhibitions around the country. 

Upcoming Events

The 62nd annual Central Washington Artists' Exhibition opens November 4, 2017 with a reception from 3-5pm.

Writing & Exploration

If you would like to learn more about my sculpture, my inspiration, my processes or what I think about in the studio, please visit my blog. I regularly post photos or videos of my work in the studio and write about my work and my exhibitions. During the academic year, I sometimes write about my experiences in the classroom.

 Teaching

I run the ceramic studio at Yakima Valley College where I also teach online Art History classes. I teach wheel throwing and hand-building classes.

 

Teaching is an important part of who I am. The process and experience of making art and the act and habit of teaching are completely interwoven in my life. I have been teaching ceramics and art classes, in some capacity, for more than a decade.
