Molten lava meeting the sea at dawn, Puna coastline, Hawaii.

I immigrated to Canada as a pottery designer, from Honolulu, Hawaii in 1973.

I am grateful to have been able to sustain the evolution of my work professionally while maintaining a  balance with rural family life here in the West Kootenay mountain rain forests and valleys.

My devotion to the shape-shifting entities of clay and fire endure at the center of my heart, and continue to be mirrors of introspection that best reflect the chronicles of my spirit.

Abiding love for the elemental magic within all the stages of the ceramic process leads me steadily forward in my life and studio practice.
