"Strength without flexibility is tyranny. Flexibility without strength is weakness.
One without the other is chaos. Both together in balance is harmony."
I am a 4th generation San Diego native who grew up loving the mountains, desert and beaches. Drawing was my first love until I discovered clay in the 3rd. grade. In high school I was able to take my first ceramics class and I immediately fell in love with the medium. I was so excited that I could draw three dimensionally in space with my forms!
I am continually inspired by natural and native elements in my environment. I love clean simple lines, enhanced by surface decoration. I love functional work that fills my eye with art and beauty. I am constantly finding inspiration from sticks, rocks, pine cones and other elements of nature. The complex simplicity in the forms is a source of never ending fascination for me. I love to use art in my life so when people have a piece of mine I want them to use it and enjoy it in an everyday setting.
