Well it is ever evolving for sure. Mercy Corps has been a huge help. I think just reaching out and finding those different people and resources. It just really depends on what I am working on.
WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR ARTWORK?
You will notice that a lot of it is nautical themed. I learned how to scuba dive awhile back and I did a fair amount of scuba diving in the past and that really kinda of shaped my desire and inspiration to make. I am very fascinated with the underwater world.
NAME SOMETHING ABOUT POTTERY THAT YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE.
I started throwing in the third grade. I fell in love with pottery from my first class. I love the material and I love it’s capabilities and its function. I think that I am a super tactile person so having my hands on clay is kind of like a magical experience. I love it and I hope that I can do it forever.
