Born and raised in southwest Wisconsin on a dairy farm, I developed an appreciation for the simplicity of life and the beauty of natural materials that comes through in her elegant and carefully crafted pottery. I am a maker of functional ceramic objects focusing on serving vessels and dinnerware made for celebratory occasions, often making the most mundane of activities a cause for merriment and remembrance. I received an MFA from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln in April 2007 and a BFA with honors from the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater in December 2002.

I teach workshops working with students, young and old, beginners and professionals. I was named an Emerging Artist of 2008 by Ceramics Monthly and in 2009, recognized with a Mayor’s Arts Kimmel Foundation Award. My work has been featured in Ceramics Monthly and 500 Plates & Chargers by Lark Books and is represented at Anderson O'Brien Gallery, Dundee Gallery, Artisan Gallery, Clay Art Center, Lost Coast Culture Machine, Terra Incognito, LUX Center for the Arts and the Sheldon Art Museum Store.
