I like to think of my work as my story. Each piece of art that I make is a feeling, a thought, or a small moment in my life that is screaming to get out. I love that I can make things that are uniquely my own. And in a time where anything you desire can be delivered to your doorstep with the click of a button, I love that I am able to create things that require time to make. To be a maker in a world run by machines is incredibly gratifying. My work is my story. My work is me.
My story did not begin in Texas but it has certainly made a home here. First introduced to clay in summer camp as a kid, I have had one foot outside in the mud and one hand in the clay ever since. I’ve taught ceramics to all ages, coached running on the rugged Texas trails, facilitated team building for Fortune 500 companies around the country, and been lucky enough to mother two disparate boys. Influenced by the textures and the movement of nature, I meander between wheel thrown and hand built techniques to create functional and sculptural pieces in Austin, Texas.
