I moved from Wisconsin to the Hudson Valley in 2011 and quickly became enamored with the region. I love maps, and have always loved hiking and exploring the outdoors.  Pottery has allowed me to combine these passions. My work features topographic maps of local and regional mountains, lakes, and hiking trails. I make functional pieces that express the playfulness and adventure that I have discovered while hiking in the Hudson Valley.  Through my pottery, I hope to provide users with a daily reminder of past adventures, or inspire them to explore new trails.

My pots are intended for everyday use, and are made using food-safe glazes.  Most pieces are microwave and dishwasher safe, though handwashing may increase longevity. I work primarily with a porcelain clay body, and fire in an electric kiln to cone 6.

Along with maintaining my own studio practice, I work for the Women’s Studio Workshop in Rosendale, and teach ceramics classes throughout the Hudson Valley.
