My current project is The Route of It All.

I began this project with my husband in 2019.

We are currently in the process of trading in our more traditional sticks and bricks lifestyle to travel the open road in an RV.

The Route of It All involves me diving deep into videography and I am loving it!

It's challenging to uproot your life and make all of the changes necessary to go nomadic.

This process takes time and it's definitely been worth it. 

Come along for this life changing adventure and see how my art changes on the road.

Why would you trade your home for an RV?

I'm an artist. I love working with clay: It's my material of choice.

Over the last few years I've taught, worked in my home studio, and fired with various communities doing atmospheric firings. While these have brought me great joy, they made me realize that as an artist one of the most important things is to keep pushing your work: in content, craft, and engagement. Some of my happiest moments over the last two years have been traveling to work with artists in different communities. But honestly, the travel back and forth was rough. For these reasons over the last year I have been contemplating a change. At first, I contemplated residencies and trade shows but then I started to add up how travel costs would interfere with my creative time and business. The numbers didn't add up, which got me thinking about travel options. One of the biggest expenses was hotels. Inspired by the Artstream Nomadic Gallery, which is an Airstream renovated into a traveling gallery, I started thinking "Could I travel to shows and bring my own gallery and place to stay?" The other large expense in travel is the act of going to and from a place. This also got me thinking, what if you didn't have to travel back from shows, just to them? Thus the idea was born to travel across the country.  There are many more reasons why I'm intrigued by the nomadic lifestyle. I love exploring nature and look forward to seeing how immersing myself in new environments, cultural traditions, and situations will affect my art as well as myself. One of the bigger questions I hope to explore on my journey is, "How do we define home?"
