The Happy Potter

I have focused my passion on artistic and functional wheel-thrown and hand-built pottery for over 20 years.  My pieces express a simple and delicate touch reflective of the very earth from which they are shaped.  I find tremendous joy and inspiration turning a ball of clay into an artistic vessel that someone will use and enjoy.


In the community: Every year I volunteer at School in the Woods and Eagleview Middle School.  Although very different projects (making tiles with 4th graders & wheel throwing with 8th graders), I love working with all the kids, often helping them explore beyond their comfort zones.

I received my formal training in ceramics at the University of Denver and I continually refine my pottery skills at workshops and conferences around the country.

I love to exhibit in regional shows and am a member of

Gallery 113 and Arati Artists Gallery.  You can also find my pottery in Kreuser Gallery, Loop LLC (Lake City, CO),

Poor Richard's (pop up gallery in Rico's) and

Reserve - Our Gallery in Woodland Park.
