The rituals of my everyday life, centered on home and community, inspire me to create works that grow from valued domestic and spiritual traditions. My mother— a working woman and resourceful homemaker— taught me to take inspiration from what was at hand. In my years spent raising children and designing gardens, I naturally searched for ways to understand and celebrate what I was experiencing in life. Objects that result from deliberate and purposeful work express humility and care. They are the gifts that guide and encourage me as I move through my life as an artist.
