My work is colourful, humorous and playful.  Both sculptural and functional, my ceramic pieces are influenced by everything....and sometimes nothing.

         I earned my  education through the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the Ontario College of Art and Design (BFA) and Nipissing University (BED).  As an artist and teacher, I worked in the Yukon, Northern Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia.  Through all my experiences, I have been exposed to many different materials.  I found that ceramics was a perfect fit as I love to be practical and playful at the same time.

I live just outside of Mahone Bay with Eric, my husband, Juniper our daughter, Turtle & Bear, our cats.
