Bio

      I was born and raised in St. Louis MO. My undergrad and grad school education were drama and theatre education. My early career was as a teacher of elementary school creative dramatics. Working with children reignited my my interest in the visual arts and desire to explore three dimensional craft in depth.

       I joined a pottery class to learn the art of wheel throwing. That was five decades ago. Mostly self-taught, the Ceramic Guild at LexArt in Lexington MA and the Ceramics Program at Harvard University in Allston MA  have provided resources as learning communities.  My current focus is sculpture and hand building. 

 

      The Ceramic Guild at LexArt in Lexington MA and the Ceramics Program at Harvard University in Allston MA  have provided resources as learning communities. I am currently a Resident Artist in the Harvard Ceramic Program. In addition, I co-curate The State of Clay, a Massachusetts ceramic exhibition  which I co-founded twenty five years ago.

    My husband and I live in Lexington MA. I also maintain a small studio in Barnard VT.
