  I have been working with wood for as long as I can remember. I studied
cabinet-making with an elderly carpintero, who taught me to talk to my
woods, asking if they wanted to be part of the project. I draw inspiration for
my turnings from many sources: Native American pottery, Classical and
Oriental forms, and the wood itself.

In addition to creating full-size artistic and functional pieces, I create scaled
miniature pieces for collectors, and Victorian-style Ornamental Turning.

I have been demonstrating and teaching since 2003, and demos include:

“Handled Drinking Bowls”, “Ornamental Turning”, “Turning Miniatures in
Wood”, and “Turning a Ring-segmented Bowl” for the Front Range Woodturners.

“Ornamental Turning”, “Turning Miniatures in Wood”, and “Turning Large Platters from 5/4 Stock” for the Rocky Mountain Woodturners Symposium.

I have done several hands-on classes for the "Ladies of the Lathe" group in Denver, including: "Turned Jewelry", "Basic Bowls", and "Turned Boxes"
