I am pursing my major in studio art with an emphasis in ceramics. I have overcome many stressful situations in my life, nearly going past my breaking point; these stressful moments have strengthened my resolve and gave a brighter perspective on life. My current forms focus on stretching clay to its limits, showing its resilience. Whenever a vessel collapses, I do not see a failed form, but rather something great and beautiful. I am constantly learning clay in all its states.
