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.
