Water, Earth, Air and Fire appear in stories throughout time as a way for people to better understand their relationship to the natural world and the universe.  Modern conveniences have created a disconnect from these four elements and with my hands in clay I explore our human connection with these elements and our partnership in survival.

Growing up in Oregon near the river and currently living along the river in Montana, I have found peace in the natural world and the elements that sustain us.  I love clay and working with my hands.  Combining these loves I am able to delve into my ideas and form them into visual pieces that extend the tranquility and quiet of the natural world to the viewer, guiding them to a place beyond the extraneous bustle of modern life.
I am happy to have my hands in clay and putting my ideas into form.
