Artist Statement

My intent for my work is to show a connection to nature, and my strong desire to be outside hiking, paddling, skating or biking. I realized early in this journey that I will never be a great technical worker and I’m OK with that, I’m more interested in color and texture than in making the prettiest vase or bowl – realizing also that the shape the color and texture are applied to does matter. I also try to inject a bit of humor when I can.
