My pottery incorporates the technique of Sgraffito as well as traditional glazing, and reflects a deep interest in ceramic traditions from different parts of the world.

My art training began just before college, when I took a gap year to explore Europe on a bicycle. I spent several months exploring the British Isles before traveling to Italy, where I paused in Florence for six weeks. During this period I wandered the art museums and began sketching the sculpture that peppers the galleries and city plazas. I returned to the United States and, after riding the bike back to Arizona, enrolled as an art student at the University of Arizona in Tucson.

As a BFA student, I focused on printmaking and painting. I did, however, study the designs of Mimbres pottery during long sessions deep in the vaults of the Arizona State Museum.

I pursued a career in law and business following graduate school in California, but continued to pursue artistic activities as time allowed. I now live and work in Denver, Colorado.

In 2017 I began working in ceramics. I fell in love with both clay as a material and the rich tradition of pottery making across time and around the world. I’ve drawn on my experiences in Arizona to incorporate elements from Native American ceramics – particularly Hohokam and Mimbres pottery – but as I explore different ceramic traditions through research for my blog I find additional sources of inspiration that I reference in my personal work.

Through this site I hope to share some of the richness of ceramics produced across time and around the world.
