I have been a student of the arts since art camp as a child. I attended the California College of Art and Design at Oakland, California. After my sophomore year I took a year abroad to apprentice as a glassblowing assistant at Tarrah Glass in Crete, Greece. When I returned to the United States I finished my art education at the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York. After graduating from college I moved to New Orleans and worked making Mardi Gras floats and as a decorative furniture and lighting finisher. After the turmoil of Hurricane Katrina, I decided to head north for the peace and beauty of the green mountains of Vermont. It was here that I found my passion in pottery. The pieces you see here were inspired by this landscape.
I find inspiration for my work in the natural beauty of Vermont. I enjoy making well crafted pottery for everyday use.
