I intended to study foreign diplomacy and took a pottery class elective in my first year of college. I was so fascinated by the material, I transferred into Fine Arts and got my degree in Ceramics. I have been exploring the infinite facets of pottery making ever since. I have lived and worked in the village of El Rito since 1978. My current work is mainly functional stoneware, but I am spending more and more time on decorative and architectural pieces. In 2006 I began teaching workshops at the Ghost Ranch Convention Center North of Abiquiu.
