Biography

I am a Toronto based ceramic artist who has completed my bachelor of design at the Ontario College of Art and Design.  Since graduating in 2005 I have continued a studio practice, actively exhibiting and teaching.

My work consists of both functional and sculptural objects. I am drawn to clay for its expressive nature as well as its ability to create utility. As an artist, I am intrigued by layers. As a maker, process plays an important role. Each working stage in a piece brings a new layer and each action leaves its mark on the finished results.  The forms I create are derived from landscapes and borrowed elements from nature, architecture and the human form.

Ceramic surface plays an integral role in my work, acting as the final layer or skin of the object. Drawings are created with the intention to play with melting properties of glazes, in order to reveal and conceal the original sketches. Various textures are utilized to highlight the raw clay combined with controlled layering of glazes leaving room for the spontaneous nature of what happens in the kiln
