There is this infestation of black slugs in Tenakee and I know I shouldn't like them, but hear me out...One night this summer while I was there, I sat in the grass with my son for a solid hour while he watched & pointed at the slugs in amazement.  We examined long ones, short ones, lone slugs, and groupings slowly passing by.  This was one of those perfect moments.  I love a good play on words, and that night as I started sketching them I thought, there MUST be a "slug mug"

One of my favorite times of the year is Fall in Alaska.  Picking berries, harvesting from the gardens, and enjoying the last bits of warmth (sometimes if we are lucky).  When I think of Fall I think of picking apples from my parent's huge apple tree in Tenakee.  It's become a ritual I look forward to and cherish each year.  This piece is a tribute to that big beautiful tree that has stocked our pantry with apple butter for years to come.

Who doesn't love a rainbow?  We all seem to have a different story of the significance they have in our lives, but here's mine.  A rainbow (or sometimes even a double rainbow) has appeared during some of the most significant moments of my life - good and bad.  You could call it a coincidence, but during times of change, I've taken this as a message or a "good sign".  Rainbows have given me self-assurance that I'm on the right path in moments of uncertainty.

Well, I just got a new color underglaze, and that was the basis for this piece.  I've been eager to use this bright pink and since it's turned out so lovely I'm sure it will become a staple color in my collection.  Patterns, consistency, and repetition are things that make me feel a sense of calm - both in my art and in life.  I've been trying to learn, understand and embrace this part of myself and in doing so I've noticed my art is becoming more colorful and playful.  I've been finding so much joy in creating in this way.

I have been less than successful with houseplants.  However, the few I have managed to keep alive have thrived, and they have brought me a lot of joy.  Like many others, my plant obsession began during the height of the pandemic and quickly got out of hand.  I love the color, and warmth they bring to my home, especially during the darkest times of the year.  While many of the plants pictured on this mug aren't in my home, this is how I appreciate their beauty
