"I am amazed at my good fortune to be doing the work of an artist. I love that my job entails spending whole days down by the river harvesting or hunkered down next to a smoking pit fire. Indigenous cultures all over the world still weave and fire their work as I do. I see myself as standing in a long line of artisans, as time moves forward my work will become a part of the natural evolution of this art’s history. I am grateful for the way this work surprises and informs me, and always leads me to points as yet unknown. My intention as an artist and as a person is to look at the world with curious eyes and to be guided by the natural intelligence of the creative process."
