I am a ceramic artist in Corvallis, Oregon. My work is exhibited in local galleries, coffee shops and art centers in Oregon. I teach art classes to children as well as adults through after school programs at the Art Center and through the OSU Craft Center. Clay calms my mind and I find it a very satisfying form of artistic expression!

I have been throwing pots for about 13 years and teaching at the craft center for 7 years. The type of pots I tend to be drawn to are definitely functional pots. In general, I am a minimalist by nature, so it only makes sense that I like to make pots that have a purpose and work well for that purpose. I'm fascinated by the little things that make a pot not only look good, but feel good to the touch and of course how they function for the user! In my classes, I try to utilize visual drawings on the white board, I provide hand outs, and do many demonstrations in order to connect with each students learning style. The lessons tend to be very process oriented and try to build a strong foundation of skills so that the students can develop solid throwing skills.
