I first realized my love for clay when I was five, when my brother and I found clay in the creek behind our house in Macon Georgia. In grade school I realized my teachers and peers appreciated my artistic contributions for class projects but, it wasn’t until I was in college that I learned how to throw on the potter’s wheel and so much about the medium. I believe that my love for the arts and my abilities therein were a gift from God.

After many years of ignoring what I knew was missing from my life, I came to realize what I was meant to do. Now I nurture the artist in me and I am so grateful for every second that I am able to work at it. I use white porcelain and throw forms on the potter’s wheel, which are sometimes altered and carved into ornamental or functional pieces such as vases, luminaries, cups, bowls, teapots and pitchers. Some of my glaze combinations are reminiscent of water, sand and driftwood.

My current body of work includes pierced vases, luminaries and sculpted porcelain boxes that resemble sun bleached coral. I love using porcelain because of its white color and how it accentuates light, shadow and contrasting surface textures. I like how the glaze pops through the negative spaces of the pierced designs. My favorite part of the creative process is when I allow myself time to play and have fun exploring new ideas.

I'm a member of Asheville Area Arts Council ("AAAC") and of River Arts District Association ("RADA").
