Art and nature have been an integral part of my life. Careful observation of the weather, lighting, and flora provide inspiration every day. Studying drawing, printmaking, and ceramics in college prepared me to produce plenty of art. I learned to value my deep connection to creativity.

After years of traveling abroad and teaching, I settled in Vermont, started a family, and resumed working in ceramics. Clay provides a perfect outlet for my creative energy and a sense of connection beyond the process that I love: handbuilding.   That process also involves a critical dialogue, challenge, and openess which guides me through the completion of each piece. 

Glazing is a very different process which involves another set of aesthetic concerns. How a glaze fits a sculpture continues to peak my interest.  I am always excited to view new work after the kiln cools to where I can peak inside.

I am delighted to have the opportunity to have a studio of my own and a creative path to follow.
