Shortly after graduating from the University of Dallas I traveled to Taiwan for a
three month artist residency at the Yingge Ceramics Museum, in New Taipei City. The
willingness of The Taiwanese people to participate in international cultural exchange
made me fall in love with Taiwan. I had the opportunity to do workshops, exhibit my
work, and visit many cultural sites. Because of the people I made relationships with,
the beautiful landscape, and the cultures relationship with ceramics I have been in
Taiwan ever since. I have established a clay studio in Yingge. In 2012 I received
the Huayu Enrichment Scholarship to study Mandarin. This spring I will be entering
my fourth semester at Shida University in Taipei. I am focusing this year on improving
my functional ware, exhibiting, and improving my Chinese.
As we age, most of us ask ourselves, where has the time gone?
