 I  was born in Sechelt, British Columbia  and grew up in Oakland CA. I  graduated from Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. My work has been exhibited at the Fuller Craft Museum in Massachusetts, the Flint Institute of Arts in Michigan, Santa Fe Clay, Virginia Brier Gallery in San Francisco, and other national venues.  I  also curate Cedar Street Gallery in Berkeley, CA. and have  been a member of Mercury 20 Gallery since 2017.
