One of the best qualities of Oregon State Fair is the diversity of art, food, drink and music you find. This truth is no more evident than when you set foot in Homegrown Oregon. It’s a lush gathering place for fairgoers who might need a break from the hubbub of the bustling fairgrounds, where you can enjoy one-of-kind works of art from Artisans Village, delicious tastes of Oregon from some of our favorite food carts, sip on locally brewed beer and wine, and enjoy live music daily.

In my beginning of art there were sketchpads, paint and canvas. I then touched clay and that was it – I was addicted. My work derives from having a mom as a chef and learned the importance of food presentation. My creations reflect the easy side of life. I make pieces that are plain, simple, hold quantity, pleasing to the eye and meant for every day use.
Being Oregon born and raised, my first touch of clay was in high school in the mid 70’s. I am basically a self-taught potter with a couple ceramic classes at Portland Community Collage.
The pieces I design, either wheel thrown or hand built goes through an extensive R&D. My adult children and I use prototype pieces so we know how the design works over all in the home. We can then make any changes before the final pieces find their own new homes. Every piece will have a tiny bit of my heart and soul in them.
