I’ve had the privilege of studying with various teachers at Art Student’s League of Denver, including Mary Cay, and at Arapahoe Community College with Robin Furuta.  I joined the Colorado Potters guild in the summer of 2004 and have been inspired by this vibrant community of artists.

I began throwing pots at a high school Quaker boarding school in Iowa and a few years later took a class at Denver’s Opportunity School and built a kick wheel with my father.

I pursued music in college instead of art and recently retired from a career as a special education teacher.  During this period, I did little with ceramics, but in 2003 I revived  my old love and started taking ceramics classes again.

At present, I am experimenting with many different techniques, but I hope to explore more my love of traditional styles which I was exposed to growing up in Guadalajara, Mexico and in a recent ceramics tour of Spain.
