A combined a career in Arts management with my ceramic practice producing one of a kind, functionally based ceramic works. Work is/has been featured in local, national and international exhibitions. I work full time from my home studio in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Artist Statement
In my Calgary studio, I produce both a line of bespoke china, and continue to work with limited edition and one of a kind pieces. My work contains a strong narrative component, often a political point of view, with an underlying humorous note to render serious situations more palatable. All functional pieces are designed with high quality materials and techniques to produce a heritage quality result, which will hopefully be used and cherished by the user.
