Building and firing hand-built and wheel-thrown pottery and sculpture for more than thirty years, I have shared my visions with many art lovers. My palette of environmental textures and rich color attracts students willing to try the mastery of modified Raku & stoneware. Look for those same inspirational textures and shape in my pottery, drawings & silver work.
Go to the Gallery Work page to see an overview of my pieces, then proceed to any of the other pages to investigate those forms or choose to proceed to the drawings to see what I have been up to on paper. It is my pleasure to share my work and enrich daily lives with beauty and a new perspective on the world around us.

My Denver studio is overseen by my assistant-doberman, Blake, Please contact me at: email@example.com
I am at home in the Rocky Mountains and the Pacific Northwest. I know these beautiful surroundings have had a profound influence on my visual vocabulary.
Leaves, feathers and shells are constant textures, while the human female torso, wings, seedpods, and aspens, among other natural presences, currently influence my organic-shaped forms.
In addition to my gallery work I love to teach:
