"While creating my gourd bowl for the MOTH fundraising event, I would often find myself humming and singing the Beatles "Here Comes the Sun." The lyrics reflect my hope for the future and the deep knowing that yes, the long cold winter is over, smiles are returning to our faces, the ice is slowly melting and yes, I say it's alright!"

Artist Statement: "I create my art using a variety of mediums including hard shell gourds, polymer clay, fibers, resins, fire, paint, found objects and treasures. I'm eager and willing to try something new and I really enjoy the process of creating and learning a new skill. I love that place in the creative process where time and space melt away and the ' doing of it ' for me, becomes a sweet offering of prayer or meditation."
