I am a Cascade High School graduate and now live in Chelan and teach PE at Chelan Middle & High School. I definitely would not consider myself an artist however I enjoy doing art with my mom in my spare time. I most enjoy creating small unique canvas paintings but did not want to miss out on an opportunity to try my hand at painting with glazes on ceramic. I'm inspired by the beauty of nature that surrounds central washington and the cascade mountains. This piece was specifically inspired by the rigid mountain ranges of Mazama and the North Cascades.
