Born and raised in Tucson, Az.
With 2020 as with most everyone else, I’ve had about every life change possible. I am reevaluating, reinventing and relearning how to start everything over.
Things happen that I would like to share, because *I* need your connection and support.
Clay is my primary media. I am an accomplished artist and teacher facilitating student success in sculpture, throwing, handbuilding, and starting their own studios in Tucson, AZ.
Photography has also been a passion and previously a job.
I dip into many other medias and materials on an as needed basis.
As an instructor I am inspired when I guide my students to enjoy the process of clay. Having a finished product is inspiring, but the brainwork it takes during the making to actually create and work out issues is what amazes me.
When working on my personal work. I am inspired by so many things. Living. Relationships. Nature. Dreams. Wandering. People. Situations. Sun and warmth.
I am concerned 'us' verses 'them' because such divisions lead to conflict and violence. I am very compassionate and empathetic and always help the underdog. We are all humans. I will not sacrifice my basic compassionate nature because of superficial differences. I want to help everyone live their best lives.

I am willing to barter my work for handywork, gas money, veggies. I can travel to you and can stay on location my travel trailer, electricity and water are helpful. You supply the clay and socially distanced and safe location for me to work. I can also advise on firing and glazing or come back to help once the work is bisqued
