My ceramics practice started over 25 years ago when I worked for a potter in my hometown in Palmer Lake, Colorado. Since then, I completed a bachelor’s of arts degree in ceramics and sculpture from Goshen College in Goshen, Indiana, and a masters of fine arts degree in arts organizational leadership from Seattle University in Seattle, Washington.
I have a varied professional background in art and nonprofit work – working in two production ceramic studios, as an art center teacher, starting a small clothing design company, collaborating on a small arts fundraising organization, and working as a manager and director at several Seattle-area nonprofits for over fifteen years. In 2015, I founded Saltstone Ceramics, a community teaching studio and gallery, growing and nurturing it into a thriving community institution with national recognition. In 2023 I sold Saltstone Ceramics to my staff.
Today I teach wheel-throwing and hand-building classes and workshops at Seattle-area studios and make small batch functional ceramics as well as ceramic sculpture.(she/her)
