I studied illustration in college with plans to become the next Norman Rockwell. It didn’t quite work out that way – I spent my professional life as an Interior Designer creating restaurants by day and watercolors on the weekends. When I moved to Salem 10 years ago I fell in love with clay. I had taken a couple of pottery classes over the years but when I took a class at Chemeketa – I realized I could make a three-dimensional canvas and then decorate it! I was hooked!
There are so many ways to decorate the surfaces of what I’ve made, I feel like I’ve just scratched the surface
