Biography

I was born in Montreal, Canada. Following graduation from Earlham College in Richmond, IN. I continued to develop my throwing skills through apprenticeships and production potting in both Europe and the United States. I received my MFA from NSCAD University in 2009.

Committed to the joys of working in earthenware, which I describe as chocolate porcelain, I continue to explore the making of functional ceramics both on and off the wheel. I am intrigued by the capacity of utilitarian objects to convey a part of the maker and making process to the user. While at work I remain aware that the choices I make in the studio have the potential to affect the way the final object is perceived and used.
