By Appointment


I am a native of the foothills of rural Western Maine, where I first developed my love of creating objects from the natural world. I first began working with clay on a regular basis while attending Franklin Pierce College in Rindge, NH in the late 90s. After undergraduate school I studied and apprenticed with potter and musician Dwight Graves, who had studied with Lucy Lewis of Acoma, Pueblo in NM. After 10 years in Taos, New Mexico, teaching art, building and firing wood kilns, developing clay and fiber wares and working on collaborations with area artists, I received my Master of Fine Arts in Ceramics at the State University of New York at New Paltz with a special focus on native clays.

I have been teaching for 20+ years, K-12 in both public in private schools, along with having taught at community college and adult workshops in studios and craft centers across the country, including Snow Farm: The New England Craft Program and Haystack Mountain School of Craft. I am a lifelong learner and regularly take workshops with fellow artists and craftsfolk to keep up with new technologies and concepts within the craft world. I am a proud Mainer and honored to be amongst so many talented and inspirational craft artists within the state of Maine. My current studio has been located within Running With Scissors Art Studios in Portland for 11 years now. in 2024 I am making plans to build and relocate my studio in my hometown of Otisfield.
