Artist Statement

As a clay artist with a background in Interior Design, I love colour, texture, and the use of shape (positive and negative space), and I embellish my hand-built clay surfaces to create sculptures, functional, and non-functional pieces.  I am drawn to the use of hand made stamps, found objects, and carving to richly texture my clay surfaces, and I use oxides, under glazes, and glaze layering to accentuate my textures and forms.  I take every opportunity to do raku.  

I have learned pottery over many years of courses, workshops, and trial and error.  I am an active and proud member of Gladstone ClayWorks pottery co-op.

I have had pieces accepted in the Ottawa Guild of Potters juried exhibitions for 2016, 2017, and 2018 and in the 2017 Fireworks Fusion Clay and Glass Bi-annual Exhibition.  I was the recipient of the Ottawa Guild Of Potters Best Expression Award in 2016.
