I have been working as a ceramic artist for more than 15 years, creating functional ware as well as ceramic jewelry and wall art.
I completed a BFA from York University and a MA from the University of Michigan. My ceramic education has been enhanced by studying with local artists at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, St. Lawrence College, and Haliburton School of Art and Design.
In addition to my studies, my aesthetic is informed by experiences gained over four years of living in Japan and complimented by a life of continuous travel. My work also reflects my interest in history, as I seek to redefine historical references in a contemporary context. I am also very interested in textiles, both old and new. As a result, my work is concerned with surface texture and pattern through carving and other means such as the contrast of shiny and matte. There is also an architectural underpinning to my hand built forms.
