Born & raised in Chicago, now living in Atlanta, GA. I Studied art at DePaul University, and graduated in 1996. I began working in clay on the potter's wheel in 2002. My work is nature-inspired, and meant to be functional. My hand-made bowls and baking dishes are oven, dishwasher and microwave safe. I love my art to be handled and used, and to become part of everyday living, not to be put on a shelf!
