Ever since I was little I’ve always had my hands on some form of art. I relish in creating something fun or amazing where others would think of as nothing there. Whether it’s a blank canvas or scraps of wood, wire, fabric or clay, I see possibilities in everything around me. I did artwork all through school, it kept me feeling alive. I studied painting and drawing with professor Sakaguchi in Pasadena,Ca. and took sculpture courses under Phil Cornelius. I did a short apprenticeship under Franco Vianello in the Napa Valley.I also took courses under the “Mad Scientist” of clay, Micheal Maday. I was privileged to attend some life changing work shops with the wonderful sculptor, Richard Carter and Sensei Kusakabe, who is an amazing ceramicist.
