I create ceramic objects that reflect my love of nature, and items that give beauty to function in everyday life.
I am a self-taught potter for the most part; having taken the odd class to supplement my independent learning. I am currently a full-time studio potter.
The pots I create reflect the enjoyment I have for throwing, embellishing, creating and using. All of my pieces are wheel-thrown and altered in some way. I embellish my pots using the sgraffito method; I cover my pots with a coloured slip and then carve the colour away, leaving behind the pure clay texture – revealing the image. My inspiration for surface treatment comes from a love of nature.
I currently work from my studio in Calgary, where I live with my husband Nick, our son Rowan and two
daughters Charlotte and Samantha.
