"I am embarking down a path to bring us back to connection, nature, and harmony. My work asks the viewer to slow down, to participate in the moment and pay attention to time passing by. I believe our connection to nature holds this same effect. As many of us spend our time inside, my goal is bring the outdoors in. I use intricate plant motifs on functional pottery to put leaves or tree rings into our hands and up to our mouths. My work and my being are fueled by nature in surface and the human body in form. This body of work is predominantly wheel thrown, hand painted, slip and underglaze trailed. The relationship between humans and nature, especially plants, has always astounded me"
