I am a late-emerging artist, discovering and quickly becoming smitten by clay after taking a class at the Carrboro (NC) Arts Center ceramics studio in 2014. Soon after, I became a studio assistant at the Center, allowing me more time for ceramics, as well as exposure to different techniques, perspectives, and approaches to making with clay. I am a science curriculum developer and teacher by trade (currently teaching at a Montessori School), but I spend as much time as possible in my in-home studio, where I both wheel throw and hand build my pieces (often altering my wheel thrown pieces). I am a member of the North Carolina Clayworks and Triangle Potters Guilds and I sell my work at a number of art shows and festivals in the region. 

I've taken a number of classes and workshops, but a workshop with Alice Ballard ( at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts changed everything for me, opening up the possibilities of clay and helping me embrace the organic and intuitive.
