“Throughout my life I’ve had the great luck of living life in physically wild and beautiful places. My work has evolved over the years to reflect a fascination with my surroundings. Currently I reside in the mountainous area of Altadena, outside of Los Angeles proper. My backyard is a canyon with a large stream that swells from the snow pack from the San Gabriel mountain range. The abundant wildlife and flora in the vicinity inspires my current clay work. Coupled with a longstanding love affair with drawing and painting, I choose to carve and paint the indigenous creatures of my neighborhood into the most natural of materials, clay.”
