I began my pottery career in 1985 as a second-generation potter. In that time I have produced close to 250,000 pots. I work in functional porcelain and saggerware. I create a range of work for designers, props masters and others. I have also had the good fortune to have been an arts educator for twenty years. In that time I have delivered hundreds of workshops in dozens of schools, community centres, health centres, libraries and my own studio. I have worked with a variety of groups in different contexts; children, youth, people marginalized or at risk, seniors. In the past 7 years, I have become active in facilitating community arts projects with a number of groups, primarily in community health care centres and libraries.
