Red Earthenware Pottery designed for use and pleasure. Colourfully decorated serving ware, mugs and vases.

I developed a great love of clay and pots while at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in the mid-1980’s, then worked in art-related fields in Kingston, Toronto and Iqaluit. Pots always remained a passionate interest and in 1999 I began making them again, taking the leap from occasional to full-time studio potter in 2004.

Currently I live and work in Almonte, a small historic mill town along the Mississippi River in eastern Ontario. It’s a charming community blending old and new in a bucolic setting. My partner and I have lived here since 2006, with our lovely pup Olive.
As well as making pots, I co-organize several artist-run exhibitions and studio tours

As of April, 2013 I am co-owner of  General Fine Craft, Art & Design in Almonte Ontario. Together with artist Chandler Swain, we have founded a wonderful gallery showing the work of over 70 artists from across Ontario and Quebec. Monthly solo and group shows supplement a well-displayed array of media including ceramics, fibre, glass, jewellery & metalwork, wood, painting, paper arts, mixed-media, furniture design and more. The General is a place like no other… drop in for a visit sometime soon!
