I am a 4th generation San Diego native who grew up loving the mountains, desert and beaches. Drawing was my first love until I discovered clay in the 3rd. grade. In high school I was able to take my first ceramics class and I immediately fell in love with the medium. I was so excited that I could draw three dimensionally in space with my forms!
I am continually inspired by natural and native elements in my environment. I love clean simple lines, enhanced by surface decoration. I love functional work that fills my eye with art and beauty. I am constantly finding inspiration from sticks, rocks, pine cones, branches, leaves and other items of nature. The complex design and simplicity in the forms is a source of never ending fascination for me.
I love to use art in my day to day life so when people have a piece of mine I want them to use it and enjoy it in their everyday setting.
My husband and I were married in 1983 in Torrey Pines State Reserve in
La Jolla, CA., so it holds a special place in my heart. My pine cone inspirations come from there. I hope you enjoy looking at and using my pots as much as I enjoy making them!
