Born and raised in Santa Fe, New Mexico, the spirit of
the southwest is in my blood, heart, and soul. Being able to express
that love when I got involved in slip-cast ceramic pottery was
a very special time in my life. It's so gratifying to create pieces
that have been admired by my peers, professionals, and even Native
Americans. The traditional styles are my favorite, and therefore,
I am constantly researching and inquiring to maintain the truest
of patterns, colors, stories, and spirit.
My pieces are one-of-a-kind and many have taken top awards and
ribbons in art shows and ceramic competitions.
I love teaching seminars in design and technique, and I have had
two books published on how to do Southwest style Indian pottery.
"A Touch of Santa Fe" and "Santa Fe and Beyond"
not only have instructions, but also preceding each article is
a history, legend, or information about the piece being constructed.
These have been very popular, especially in places with little
or no information available in these areas.
