My art process begins with writing. From pages and pages I pull out the sentence that shines and take it with me as I move to working upon my bowls and cups. Here the words are merged with drawings to create small, round, clay poems. Then the words and drawing are recorded with paint on paper, creating an unbound page

I am currently engaged in a lifetime body of work: The Small Round Poems of The Bowl Maker. Made up of 10,000 bowls (and cups). With painted recordings of each bowl upon an unbound page. Each bowl and cup are numbered, on this fine December morning I am on bowl #2501. 

The unbound pages become paintings to accompany bowls in a show, they are being pulled into books, they appear on products, they are reproduced and offered as prints. They create collections of works documenting my travels through the 10,000 bowls.

The 10,000 bowls are the 10,000 mornings of waking and joining my soul in the studio. They are constellations in the galaxy that it is the work springing out of the writing that starts each session in the palace of making.


Dedicated studio artist, in love with a fisherman, mama bear to two young adults, living 100% off grid on solar and hydro power for 26 years, dog rescuer, neighbor to an elk herd that roams the foothills of Mount Baker in Washington State, owner and artist of The Bowl Maker company, too many personal and collaborative art projects to count and always one or two in the hopper, adding to the spark and passing it on, sharing wonder by the cupful.

And then the dragon bathed me in fire. To my surprise, instead of burning up, I cracked open, like a seed that needs certain conditions in order to be ready to plant.

Time in the realm of story, where intuition is afoot and the great wheels of imagination and understanding are turning, inspires me.

A soul, just a moment ago dormant, is now wide awake and humming along.

I grew up in a safe circle of creativity and scientific wonder. My scientist dad and pianist mom gave me the time and paper to fill the kitchen table and floor with my paintings and drawings.At California State University Long Beach I found the ceramics department: a vibrant program led by dedicated professors and unified students. With ceramic sculpture I began my conscious adult life as a dedicated artist. Throughout my M.F.A. and various artist-in-residency programs, I discovered Bellingham, Washington, where I fell in love with a fisherman. We built our home in the foothills of Mount Baker, and home-birthed two children. Now I work as a mother and artist amongst dogs, cedar trees, and a close community. Art for me is a wonderfully fierce, necessary thing. It can not be separated from my being.
