This website captures samples of current artwork of mine. The name of my site, Alpine Hills Studio is based on the name of the neighborhood where I currently live and also happens to be the neighborhood where I grew up.
My mother also used Alpine Hills in her art business name, which was Alpine Hills Pottery & Painting. I contribute my beginning knowledge of art to her. Pottery is especially dear to me as I have many fond memories of playing with clay and learning to throw on the wheel. I accompanied her to art shows, including Super Saturday held at The Evergreen State College (TESC), where I learned how to tally orders and count back change and I also sold my first painting and pottery by the age of 9.
I have painted off and on since then, but reintroduced myself to pottery in a class at Evergreen last year. I have fallen in love with creating pottery again and currently am a member of TESC Clay Club. I am excited about claiming my mother's pottery equipment and having a studio at my residents soon.
