My Story

My love of clay began at the University of Wisconsin-Superior. Initially I assumed I would be a biologist. Quickly realized it wasn't my "cup of tea." In one of my earlier classes, I discovered that I truly enjoyed weaving. The ability to make a tactile yet functional object, with unlimited possibilities, drew me into art. I became hooked, and switched my focus. While I studied, I took advantage of all the studio space I could, and eventually took a ceramics class from clay professor Jim Grittner. 

I love creating simple geometric shapes – wheel-thrown stoneware with clean lines and angles. I reference Danish modern, with a hint of American retro. My work is influenced by both the beauty of the earth and the importance of the past. My appreciation of the way nature makes wonderful lines, from tall slender trees to hard-edged blades of grass, and works to represent those lines in my art.

Currently,  I am working out of the Duluth Pottery Tile & Gallery located in the  the Lincoln Park Crafts District of Duluth, Minnesota with Duluth Pottery business owner, Karin Kraemer, and Warrior Printress Letterpress & Design.

It is great to be in an area with other business' that are makers too.
