Once upon a time I was an Information Technology project manager working in the Federal Government. I started taking pottery classes on weekends and got hooked. After retirement I was able to focus more on pottery at a public pottery studio. But moving to a rural setting allowed me to set up my own pottery studio.

I have always been fascinated by the process of making pots, created either on the wheel or building by hand with slabs of clay. I find the texture and structure of natural forms inspiring which I try to incorporate into my work. It’s a lifelong learning process, while exploring and enjoying the creativity of playing in the mud.
