I am a ceramic artisan who has recently relocated to Whistler from Redondo Beach, CA. Handcrafting and designing colorful ceramic pieces in my home studio that reflect my joy at living surrounded by such beauty and adventure. Ceramic is a powerful medium and it is the learning I thrive on. The magic of a kiln opening. The feel of a well made cup in my hand. My current work embodies these things. A coalescing has happened recently. My lifelong love of pattern has led to designs that at once take me back to my Aunt’s circa 1970 patterned dresses and great fabric designs like the works from Marimeko. More recent memories take me to places I have traveled and the fabrics and folk art that I have seen. These designs are playing out in new tableware and wall pieces that I am creating in my new but forever Whistler home.
