EDUCATION

1975-79 Boise State University, BA 1978, John Takehara, master teacher, ceramics 1975 West Linn High School, West Linn, Oregon, Graduated

My work is bas-relief tile and functional pottery created from cone 10 stoneware. I sculpt, inscribe, and/or slip paint to achieve my visual aesthetic. The maritime environment where I live provides much of the inspiration and the subjects seen in the patterns and compositions, which make my work unique.
