Like many potters I got my first taste of the potter’s wheel in college at Northern Arizona University.

I knew immediately that I loved it. My career as a social worker and two children later required that I put my love for pottery in a box. Now 35 years later I am back at the potter’s wheel and loving it.

My inspiration for my pieces has always been Mother Nature. I love how perfectly imperfect nature is. The Japanese call it Wabi-sabi.

In my latest series of pieces I am combining wood with my clay. Last year my inspiration was flowers and hummingbirds. My husband of 50 years, and I love to go on adventures in the mountains and I always look for treasures that I can incorporate into my work.

As Vincent Van Gogh once said: “If you truly love Nature you will find beauty everywhere”.
