I earned my education through the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, the Ontario College of Art and Design (BFA) and Nipissing University (BED).  As an artist and teacher, I worked in the Yukon, northern Quebec, Ontario and Nova Scotia.  Through all my experiences, I have been exposed to many different materials.  I found that ceramics was a perfect fit as I love to be practical and wild at the same time.
Ceramics is an art form that allows for function and sculpture to mix or be completely separate.  My style varies.  There is pleasure in both for me.   I find myself amused with functional ceramics that engage the user in a playful manner and sculptures that create an emotional reaction for a viewer.
