I believe that life should be centered around family, friends and doing what you love. I also believe in working hard and putting my best into everything I do. To be sucessfull at anything you have to be determined and be willing to put in the time and effort. I love the motto "work hard, play hard". I currently live in Orem, Utah with my two beautiful daughters, Madelyn and Josie and our silly cat, Hello Kitty.
I love the outdoors and going on adventures, camping and hiking, campfires with friends, running, playing soccer, and wilderness skills. I love the Anasazi culture, and I especially love their pottery. I really enjoy travelling and visiting the many ruins and museums all over the American Southwest.
My desire to make anasazi pottery started with my interest in primitive and survival skills. I love the fact that you can go into the wild with nothing and get all you need to survive and even flourish from the earth. The idea that you can go out and dig up some "dirt", shape it, paint it and fire it all using only materials found in nature is amazing to me.
Along with my interest in primitive skills I also have a love for the desert of the southwest...and this is where I developed a fascination of the pottery of the Anasazi. There are many areas where Anasazi pot shards are scattered all over the ground, so many that it's hard to walk without stepping on them.
