In 1967, Jodi left her home country of Canada to explore Europe, the Middle East, and the Far East. The colorful and textured landscapes of Taiwan and Bangladesh, as well as the intricate patterns intertwined in the histories of African and European countries, became a part of her very being. Jodi’s talent as an artist is innate, and she is entirely self-taught. Her unique style, inspired by nature, is brought to life through her use of “Oritatami Nendo: folding clay” – a technique that produces stunning and original pieces of art. Jodi's creations resonate with all cultures and styles, reflecting her deep connection to the environment and the natural world.
