For as long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to be an artist and a scientist. When I was about to turn 40, I took my first throwing class and immediately fell in love with clay. The more I learned, the more I realized that working in clay combined art and science and I found myself right where I wanted to be.

My ceramic education has been self-directed, taking classes at art centers, community colleges and attending numerous workshops. My work is wheel-thrown and sometimes altered. I prefer using porcelain for the way it enhances the vibrancy and richness of the glazes.

My passion is for functional pots that you can hold and caress and that have meaning in your everyday life – coffee in the morning with a favorite mug, your hands familiar with every curve and ridge.
