I use art to share my life. Adventuring into wild and new places gives me peace. The plants and wildlife I encounter are incorporated into my designs. I create abstract patterns inspired by the traditional and natural patterns I find along the way. My own garden provides plants to press into clay. When I’m working, the moment guides my hands, and I let go of life’s expectations. I find freedom. I make ceramics that people can use. In that way, my life is connected to the lives of others.
