I am a ceramic artist and potter. My pottery career began by accident while studying painting in the Visual Arts Program at Red Deer College, once I got my hands into the clay, I couldn’t get them out. Sculpture is my passion and I like to evoke the feeling that there is a story it is trying to tell, whether real or imagined.
I have come to realize that life is short and my work has to have some form of humour in it to make me want to keep making and exploring. It has to be fun and I love it when people laugh at my work!
I love layering different techniques to give depth to the surface along with patterns and colours. I combine my own glazes and slips as well as commercial ones to achieve the look I desire. I am drawn to making whimsical, colourful things full of patterns, textures and flowers, there is never enough.
Quality workmanship, attention to detail and a sense of humour are at the core of all my work.
