I am currently a Red Star Foundation Artist In Residence at Belger Crane Yard Studios (Formally Red Star Studios) in Kansas City, Missouri.

Artist Statement

I am a pottery with a design aesthetic. Through thoughtful craftsmanship, I intend to communicate the importance, permanence, and necessity of my pots. I use porcelain to throw and hand build shapes that are informed by facets of design, historical ornamentation, and Modernism. Practical beauty is conveyed through the articulation of curves and edges that create the forms and adorn their surfaces. I am drawn to the dynamic form change that occurs when a graceful curve moves around a pot and into an edge.
