I have been a studio potter since 1993. While living in Louisiana, I got a job managing and teaching at a community craft center, Gumbo U, and took courses at Louisiana State University and University of Louisiana, Lafayette.
In 1999, I moved to Stamping Ground, Kentucky where I worked out of my home for 10 years exhibiting at craft shows throughout the region. In 2010, I joined two other potters, Audrey Hammond and Les Greeman. to open a studio and gallery in Frankfort, Kentucky called Broadway Clay. We teach classes to adults and children and sell pottery, jewelry and 2D art from around the Bluegrass area. I am a member of the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen and the Kentucky Craft Marketing Program.
My work can be found at Broadway Clay in Frankfort, the Kentucky Artisan Center in Berea, the Damselfly in Midway, KY and Indigenous in Cincinnati.
I like to throw light, thin pieces, so that it isn’t a strain to use the piece when you fill it with liquid. Each piece is carefully crafted, comfortable to use, smooth to the touch. The lines are graceful and simple. I like natural earthy tones. My forms are inspired by nature. My current series comes from roots and vines. I make pottery because I enjoy playing in mud, working a lump of clay into a useful yet graceful form.
