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: I love volunteering at Eagleview Middle School, assisting 8th grade art students learn to throw on the potter's wheel. I also love helping the 4th graders at School in the Woods with their yearly clay tile project.

I received my formal training in ceramics and studied many artistic forms, including photography and painting, while earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree at the University of Denver.  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.
