"There is something so magical about making objects out of clay. I start with an idea and create something from nothing."

I create work that stimulates the imagination while maintaining a useful purpose. Using clay, I enjoy exploring the relationships between surface, texture, form and utility. Inspired by botanical images and creatures I observe seasonal in nature.  I combine this imagery into my work through hand painting, stamping and sprigs to create fanciful narrative pots that represent the beautiful changing scenery of Pennsylvania.

I focus my creations to bring joy to those who use them, making their lives and daily routines more exciting and enjoyable.

Growing up in Chester County, Pennsylvania, I spent most of my time either playing in the field behind our family home or in the neighboring woods. Early on, my family’s appreciation for nature and handmade things had its influence on my artwork. Mom and Dad filled our yard with overflowing beauty, planting numerous species of trees and flower gardens of almost infinite variety. This has made lasting impression.

I am currently a full time studio potter living in Pittsburgh, PA. I received a Bachelor’s of Fine Arts from Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2003). After graduating I moved to Pittsburgh and began teaching at the Carnegie Museum. In 2005, I began teaching at the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, where I have taught for the last 8 years. My philosophy about teaching is simple and rooted in my love and passion for the ceramic process. I sell my work at retail craft shows, and my work can be found in many galleries and shops scattered across the U.S.
