My journey into ceramics resulted from feeling dislocated when I moved to Toronto from the US in 2009. I have always been a maker; quilts (traditional and abstract), fabric bags, door wreaths and knitwear, but I was searching for more. I discovered a pottery studio in my neighbourhood, signed up, fell in love with clay and never looked back.
I began my membership at Woodlawn Pottery Studio in 2010, moving on two years later to become a Board Member. In the beginning I worked from a largely self-taught foundation in functional ware. Recently I have become increasingly interested in sculptural forms. I experiment with a combination of glazes that complement different clay bodies.
In the life of a potter I am still pretty new. Curiosity, patience and the ability to laugh at and learn from disappointments are key to keeping my creative channels open and alive.
