“When a skill is something we learn through play as a child we are not aware it’s a skill, it’s just an intuitive part of us.”

After working successfully as a studio potter for 8 years in Tsawwassen I just really wanted to go to school and get as much exposure to ceramics and art in as short a period of time as was humanly possible.

So, my exhilarating adventure began with a 2 year stop at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Oakville, Ontario and then off to Alberta College of Art and Design for two years in Calgary, Alberta to complete my BFA degree majoring in Ceramics with as many hot glass classes as I could manage to get thrown into the mix.

I am now living in Sooke, BC, have been setting up my studio, building a gas kiln and re-establishing old ties.

While I have been away my work has been showcased in local and international juried shows and is part of the permanent collection at the Jingdezhen Ceramic Institute.
