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 teacher facilitating student success in sculpture, throwing, handbuilding, and starting their own studios.
Photography has also been a passion and previously a job.
I dip into many other medias and materials on an as needed basis.
Living. Nature. Dreams. Wandering. People. Situations. Sun and warmth.
I am concerned with clinging to strong feelings of 'us' and 'them' because such divisions lead to conflict and violence. It's basic human nature to be compassionate. We have a natural sense of 'we' and 'us'. As social animals we can't survive alone. We depend on the community we live in. We essentially belong to the same family and we must not sacrifice our basic compassionate nature because of superficial differences. I want to help everyone live their best lives together with my work and help.
Getting a reboot on my life this year. Follow along if you like or subscribe for regular updates.
A unique private class in your socially safe studio (prefer outdoors) based on your clay/studio needs

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
