Film maker, construction worker, cabinet maker, heavy equipment operator, boat builder, airplane fuselage laminator, marketing communications professional, English teacher, arts administrator, writer, and artist, my path has been weird and wonderful. The many twists and turns I've taken have been
valuable learning experiences that have brought me to the current iteration of
myself as a professional ceramic artist.

I am inspired by fractals, succulents, sea creatures, and insects. My one-of-a-kind ceramic sculptures are sensual, alluring, and playful. Their highly textured surfaces elicit curiosity, inviting intimate examination, visually and through touch. I lovingly create each piece for the daily enjoyment of their owners.

A builder at heart, I am re-emerging as a practicing ceramic artist after a 15-year gap during which I traded my clay practice for time helping build and manage Clayworx (formerly London Clay Art Centre) in my home city of London, Ontario. My passion for clay was reignited during the pandemic of 2020-22 when I was chosen to participate in a creative mentorship. The experience proved to be life-changing, compelling me to explore conceptual sculptural forms and begin building my career as an artist rather than as an arts administrator.

Since childhood I have been captivated by human ingenuity and fascinated with materials science. I continually try to weave into my artwork the principles of design and engineering I observe in both manmade and natural forms.

I believe ceramics is the world’s most ancient and complex art form. It demands seamless integration of the hands, heart, and mind. It can be both devastating and deeply gratifying. The challenges and infinite possibilities keep me excited for what will emerge from the next kiln load!
