I have a passion for turning unwanted things, like old bicycle tire tubes, into useful or beautiful things. I believe in the healing process of creating. Whether I’m digging my hands into a lump of clay or going through the intricate process of enameling some metal, I am able to immerse myself in the flow of creating. Thoughts float away, time stands still, and a fresh new energy is cultivated within the body. It’s a similar state that I find when practicing yoga.
I have created a place to sell some of my creations online. I also enjoy hosting classes or gatherings at my house where others can join in in the experience of creating.
“You are not here merely to make a living. You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand.”
