I was a doodler as a child and started taking art seriously during my senior year of high school. Traditional drawing and painting were my interest until the summer of 1997, when I discovered clay. My exploration of clay’s potential led me to experiments of integrating wood & metal. However, the core of my artistic expression remained in the world of ceramics. While studying under Philip Cornelius at Pasadena City College, I made connections in Japan. I had opportunities to visit ceramic sites in Tokoname and Mashiko. These trips to Japan completely changed my life and the subject of my work.
