“Hope then to belong to your place by your own knowledge of what it is that no other place is, and by your caring for it as you care for no other place”  Wendell Berry

I live and work in Albuquerque, NM~ a creative and collaborative city that does much with little. We rely on each other to share resources, leverage support and build networks. Our artists are responsive to and reflective of each other- more cooperative than competitive. I sell pottery locally, online and through gallery exhibitions across the country. I coordinate community projects in arts and culture in the state of New Mexico in partnership with a community of growers, vintners, chefs, writers, dancers, musicians, poets, event planners, marketers, community organizers and other artists.

“The practice of love is the most powerful antidote to the politics of domination.” bell hooks

Since my 2008 MFA exhibition, Home Economics, I’ve explored the way traditions, habits of consumption, land-use and material culture shape human lives and the landscapes that bear the burden of industrial production. I’ve come to see small-scale local production as a necessary form of resistance and as the greatest good a community can offer it’s own place and the world at large. Food is love. Beauty is hope. I offer this to my community with my full effort. 

In celebration of Women&Creativity, we invite you to dine with great women artists: chefs, dancers, potters, musicians, farmers, and others during two unique pop-up events.

What Becomes at Zendo Coffee and Sidetrack Brewing with Sanitary Tortilla Factory on Saturday, April 29th. 

What Becomes is an ongoing collaborative clay sculpture project made by participants of all ages. Everyone is invited to join in and no experience is required. Grab a coffee at Zendo or a local brew at Sidetrack and join us on the patio for some fun in clay!

Participants will be invited to make clay objects from plaster molds and add to a community sculpture. We’ll work together over the course of a Saturday to grow our sculpture as large as we can. Following the live collaborative sculpting event, we will exhibit this temporary work at Sanitary Tortilla Factory. This workshop is free thanks to support from the Fulcrum Fund of 516 arts and the Andy Warhol Foundation.
