I grew up in western New York where I loved to play in mud, with Play-Doh, Silly Sand, and just about anything I could mold, shape and press things into.
In college, things got serious. I attended The State College of New York in Brockport. As a painting and drawing major I decided to take a ceramics class. I was completely and hopelessly hooked. I have been producing items with clay ever since.
After college I worked in some of the finest craft galleries on the east coast. Along with showing my own work there I also curated ceramics exhibits and even juried a national porcelain exhibit.
Now that I live in North Carolina (where the livin's easy) I can make pottery full time. A long time dream come true.
I am inspired by the classical forms of the ancient Greeks as well as the clean and simple lines of the American Arts & Crafts movement of the early 20th century.
Along with clay I sometimes can be found in my husband's woodworking shop, or creating with watercolors, oil paints, sculpey, pmc, stamps as well as mixed media collage.
