I have a passion for the environment and a belief that opening pathways to experiencing it is critical to our wellbeing. Art has an important role to play in awakening our senses to the multiplicities of colors and sounds and textures that too often escape our notice within our cloistered human surroundings.
I’m first and foremost a process-oriented artist. I work with the materials I’m given, whether it's clay or people or place, and I work to listen to what they're asking to become. At the core of everything I do is a deep and abiding love of materials and a belief in their transformative powers, where poetry can be found in the details.
Through all of my work, I place a high premium on the quality of materials and craftsmanship, which is not only essential to the integrity of the work; it becomes the seduction that draws a viewer in. The poetry is in the details.
