I started my pottery life as a collector, acquiring work from galleries and high end craft shows. Inspired by what my husband and I collected, I have been making pottery since 2004. Now in my third career, (first as a classical musician, and second as a human resources executive), my ceramic education has been through classes and workshops of artists whose work I particularly respect and admire, including classes with Harriet Ross and workshops with Jeff Shapiro, Akira Satake, Jack Troy, Bruce Dehnert, Kristin Muller, Mary Barringer, Malcolm Davis and many others.
My recent exhibitions include:
