I started working in clay when I was living in Somerville and attending Massachusetts College of Art in 2001 for a master’s degree in art education. I spent long days in the studio building life size hand-built sculptures that were inspired by the human body and abstractions of the female psyche.
I fell in love with the malleability and organic nature of clay and despite life happening, I am still making forms 15 years later. We moved out of the city in 2003, bought a house, started a family and started teaching again part-time at a local high school. I work as often as this busy life allows, and am grateful for the support of family and friends.
In addition to working out of my studio in our home’s basement, I travel to Mudflat Studio in Somerville once a week. My current work is largely functional and smaller in size, but continues to draw upon abstractions of nature and the female form.
