I am a potter and social artist inspired by people – our food, traditions, and place. My goal is to have my work serve a purpose beyond its utilitarian function by designing it for who and how it will be used. My aesthetic is inspired by the two and a half years I lived in Guatemala and evolves with the people I meet and places I go. I currently live in rural New Mexico making, writing, teaching, collaborating, and always learning.
I've taken my surface designs to textiles! Browse or purchase scarves, pillows, blouses, purses, and more.
Happening Now: Project Canary
The extreme and misguided decisions politicians make have real life repercussions. As our leaders send legislation such as bathroom bills, twenty week abortion bans and more into action, people’s lives are impacted. They claim to be protecting people, but often the stories of those whose lives are negatively impacted by these policies don’t have the privilege of telling their story. Project Canary honors the experience above the rhetoric by connecting people to each other through their individual untold stories.
