I love the unique and different.

I grew up exploring nature, studying plants, and working outdoors for many years.  I am deeply inspired by the textures, forms and tiny details of nature which have shaped my creative spirit. As an artist and maker, I strive to live creatively and keep discovering.

I create modern organic forms by hand, from slabs of clay. I enjoy designing without patterns or guidelines so that each piece grows into its own character and qualities. Working in ceramics reminds me that mistakes often lead to the most creativity, beauty and happiness. I hope you find something unexpected that makes you smile.
