I was born and raised in Utah where I developed a love of aspen covered mountains, red rock cliffs and high country desert. After completing my BFA from the University of Utah, College of Fine Arts in 1990 I went on to become an attorney. I practice in the field of workers compensation, helping injured workers who have been denied coverage. It is a fulfilling job, but stressful. Art is my sanity. I am well versed in silverwork, fused glass and painting, but my preferred medium is porcelain. Its smooth surface is perfect for flowing, glassy glazes and a delight to the touch.
