Specialties: porcelain

Location: Maine

It started with the gift of hundreds of ceramic molds…then the big kiln came next.

For the past three years, I’ve been playing in clay. I started slipcasting ceramics, and now I’m creating ceramic components for jewelry artists to use in their own work. I work primarily in white earthenware and terracotta clay, but in the future I’ll be adding stoneware and mid-fire porcelain to the works…

I got started in fine arts with pastels when I was 10, taking lessons from Hal Kenyon, a retired art instructor from Swarthmore. In the ensuing 20 years, I’ve created art using pastels, watercolor, pen and ink, and a combination of these. With the exception of my early art lessons and a brief period in high school when I took watercolor lessons, I’m mostly self-taught.

I live in Acton, Maine with my husband Pete, my son Isaac, and our dog and cat (who literally fight like cats and dogs).
