Q&A With This Artist
A: I do not aim for “flawlessness” – my work leaves a trace of a fluid, organic process and a human set of hands. Windswept trees, cold blue bodies of water, and lichen covered granite boulders intrigue and inform my artistic palette. Gentle curves, textured surfaces, and meandering lines speak through my art. Atmosphere, expressive brush strokes, and simple glazes mimic the timelessness of nature.
A: Clay is such a powerful teacher.
A: My work is constantly evolving and being inspired by my life circumstances.
A: Spending time backpacking in the wilderness and being surrounded by sublime beauty deeply informs my aesthetic.
A: This craft has given me direction, pushed me through school and kept me on track for the last 9 years. I am forever grateful for my relationship with clay and the clay community at large.
