My life of worldly poverty and artistic freedom began with an evening pottery class in High School. I immediately fell in love with clay and wanted to keep making pottery. But the poverty-thing sounded like a problem, so I attended the University of New Brunswick. While completing my Bachelor of Arts degree, however, I worked as a studio assistant to a very skilled potter named Marilyn Farrell. She taught me a great deal, and my love-affair with clay was renewed.
In pursuit of my passion, I enrolled at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in 2003, and graduated with a "Certificate in Studio Pottery" in 2005. Following graduation I renovated an old building on my parent's property in rural New Brunswick, and I've worked there ever since.
I am a juried member of the Craft Councils of both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. I am committed to making quality pottery that is unique, beautiful, cheerful, and functional. I believe strongly that hand-made functional pottery should be tested to ensure strength and durability.
