My life of worldly poverty and artistic freedom began with an evening pottery class in High School. I immediately fell in love with clay, although the poverty-thing turned me off and I attended the University of New Brunswick. While completing my Bachelor of Arts degree, however, I worked as a studio assistant to potter Marilyn Farrell, 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 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.
A juried member of the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia Craft Councils, I am committed to making quality work of beauty and function. I believe strongly that hand-made functional work should be tested to ensure strength and durability.
