About

I got started in clay about 7 years ago when
I took an elective class at school and wound up spending the majority of my time in the clay studio. I switched my major the next semester and have been working in clay ever since. There are so many avenues you can take with clay and the opportunities are endless, this keeps me striving to create.

I have completed summer internships at Coach Street Clay in Canandaigua and a year long apprenticeship at the Rochester Folk Art Guild in Middlesex, NY.  I received my BFA from Alfred University with a concentration in ceramics in May of 2016. 

I am lucky enough to work out of my beautiful 200 year old house in the Finger Lakes Hills with my three pups Lola, Buxton and Timber by my side (often with clay on their sides).  When I am not in my studio I am most likely walking my pups, on an adventure or reading in my hammock!
