My love of working with clay began in art class in elementary school and my hands have been in the mud ever since. I first began selling my pots while working as an artist in residence and instructor at the Roberson Center in Binghamton New York. I then went on to recieve my MFA in Ceramics at the State Univerity of New York at New Paltz. Over the years I have shared my love of the medium teaching ceramics at Acedemia Cotopaxi, in Quito Ecuador, and at Arlington High School in LaGrangeville, New York. My studio is in my home in Kingston, New York, which is located in the beautiful Hudson River Valley.
