Although my career started in Costume Design, it has taken many art related paths before leading to sculpture. I am fortunate to have chosen an artist’s life and been able to create as a daily practice.  I never dread going to work.  I love what I do.

Each morning this path leads to my studio, with a steaming mug of coffee in hand and my large fury shadow close at my heels. He knows the routine.  Our commute is not long, just out to the garage to check the kilns or down a few steps to my small but light filled studio that opens to the garden.  The garden is a private, farm inspired oasis in the city, filled with fruit trees, chickens, veggie beds and tropical plants nestled among northwest native species. The garden is a Certified Wildlife Habitat for the creatures and a touch of wild space to clear my head. When the weather allows, the doors are open letting the cat and chickens wander through, and the sounds of the birds outside make their way in.

My studio is a space where I sort the influences of the outside world that tangle with stories swirling in my head. These are sifted through memories, hopes and dreams as I let my hands do the work of interpreting this stew of thoughts.   My studio is a place where I can shape the world as I choose. It’s a place where I can constantly challenge myself.

As much as I thrive on a daily dose of creating, exploring the Pacific Northwest’s wild spaces re-energizes me.  Hiking and skiing the surrounding Cascades, paddling and swimming in nearby waterways.  I am grateful for my adventurous family who all share my love for nature, travel and enjoying life.   Family, art and nature keep my life in balance.
