The world around me inspires both intense curiosity and profound reverence. My creative responses include site-specific and collaborative works as well as sculptural pieces and mosaics. I am particularly focused on creating art that speaks across cultural, religious, or economic differences.
In addition to my own studio practice, I’ve worked as a university professor, art program manager, and gallery coordinator. Two highlights from this past year include launching Mere Objects and providing ongoing consulting and support for a team of ceramic artisans at Papillon Enterprise in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
Since 2012, I have lived and worked at the Grünewald Guild, an intentional community in the Cascade Mountains of Washington state.
