I grew up in Guatemala , Central America, and moved to Topeka , Kansas in 1982. In 1995 I started to take classes at Washburn University as a non traditional student. After several classes and advice from my instructor and friend Glenda Taylor I completed my requirements and graduated with a BFA . After that, I continued taking workshops at Washburn University Art Department with a concentration in ceramics. In the year of 2009 I moved to Kansas City where I joined Red Star Studios for two years, then I joined 323 Clay Studios in Independence Missouri, where I share space and life with other ceramic artists.
I like to make small hand built sculptures and small functional pieces that are thrown on the wheel and are one of a kind pieces. In my sculptures I play with elements of the human figure, flowers and animals ( specially birds and dogs), and the relationship that exists between them. In my functional pieces I carve and also have bird and organic imagery.
In the last few years I have participated in different figure worshops and other ceramic demonstrations. I have enjoyed going to the NCECA conferences and the KACA meetings.
