Since 2008, I've worked primarily with clay. I make expressive sculptures as well as functional objects, kind of yin and yang. I started out as a printmaker, learned to be a graphic designer and eventually became a graphic design teacher.
After a wonderful graphic design career in Birmingham, Alabama, I lived in Atlanta, Georgia for twelve years where I began my fascinating journey with clay. In 2015, I moved with my husband to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to be near family and childhood friends. Some influences in my clay work now include references to flora and fauna of the Mid-Atlantic.
I'm fortunate to be a Fellow of the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and Science in Rabun Gap, Georgia. From 2011-2014 I was a Resident Artist in the clay program at Callanwolde Fine Arts Center in Atlanta. In 2020, I was inducted by my high school alma mater into the Ursuline Academy (Wilmington) Arts Hall of Fame. My BA in Studio Art is from the University of Vermont and MFA in Advertising Design is from Syracuse University. More details are on my resume.
