A wonderful introduction to clay at Minas Potters Guild in Wolfville, Nova Scotia, led me to study clay, fabric design and sculpture at NSCAD and at the Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. I went on to run my full time clay studio and taught both adult and children’s classes at NSCAD’s School of Extended Studies. My work has been carried in galleries in both Canada and the USA, and graced the cover of a national craft magazine. Visitors may come to my studio by appointment, or find my pots either at Bogside Gallery in Halifax’s Hydrostone shopping area or at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia’s Gallery Shop.

I work in a cone 6 buff stoneware with white or clear glaze and paint the clay or glaze surface with colourful stains or slips. Playfulness and function fit together into pieces that I hope will be used and enjoyed in people's daily lives.
