I am a blue-collar maker - collector and visual thinker .
I have spent most of my adult life, supporting myself and other humans, in our various quests to make and create objects and community.
I carry with me and to my studio practice a diverse background in Art and Design which includes formal training in: painting , print making, ceramics and sculpture.
Additionally, I have nearly three decades experience in education, various construction trades and processes, public and customer service, project management , organizational development, teaching, interest based negotiation and small business ownership and management.
Throughout my life I have consistently done whatever was necessary to create the conditions and environments for me and my community to make and create.
I am process based artist/ maker, who appreciates collaborative opportunities, is stimulated by new ways of seeing and is grateful to everyone who has influenced my creative journey thus far.
