I am an educator, artist, a craftsman and designer. I love to create large and small ceramic sculptural objects, components, mixed media sculpture, and paintings. These objects and processes are the starting points for my work which attempts to recontextualize the function, aesthetics, and value of everyday objects through a resistance to the functionally fixed. I approach learning, making, and teaching in response to one another; kinesthetically, often using one outcome or result to determine the direction of the next move. I love to explore, learn, and be surprised by the unexpected and unlikely.
I am the Assistant Curator and Art Restorer at Dick and Jane's Spot in Ellensburg Washington, proprietor of The Palace Gallery also in Ellensburg, and a seasonal Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Montana's School of Visual and Media Art in Missoula in 2022/23.
I have been a Visiting Artist In Residence at North Dakota State University, a Long Term AIR at the Red Lodge Clay Center, a Summer Fellow at the Archie Bray Foundation, and the AIR at the Sonoma Community Center. I currently teleport between a dual state existence and multifarious art practice in Ellensburg, Washington and Missoula, Montana.
