Me, next to Sergei Isupov’s piece at NCECA Seattle, 2012

I graduated from the Oregon College of Art and Craft with a BFA Craft with a concentration in Ceramics Arts, where I received the Student Scholarship Award for Outstanding Academic and Artistic Achievement; “Best in Show” at the Hoffman Gallery Juried Student Show; 3rd Place at The 2015 NCECA Undergraduate Award For Excellence & The Studio Potter Undergraduate Merit Award, Providence, RI and The 2014 Huntley-Tidwell Scholarship, attending Penland School of Craft, Asheville, NC. Another recognition was being included in an art book publication, 500 Figures in Clay, Vol. 2.

My work has been shown in numerous galleries in Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the US, including Eutectic Gallery and Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR. My work is represented in both private and public collections, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Juan, Puerto Rico and Gifu Prefecture, Tokyo Kouryu High School, Japan.

I’m currently a mentee at the Ash Street Project in Portland, OR.
