My exploration began with an appreciation of Japanese and British pottery. The simplicity and elegance of the shapes of these vessels and the use of subtle colour in the glazes were visually appealing.   These vessels are elegant and functional.

I use stoneware and porcelain clays for functional ware and paperclay for masks and gardenhouses.  More recently I have included whimsical elements and brighter colours.

I have been a member of both the Penticton Potters’ Guild and South Vancouver Island Potters’ Guild.  I have participated in many workshops and programs.  My work has been shown at Side Street Studio and Lighthouse Gallery in Victoria and Fandango and Tulista Park in Sidney.  I have been included in Gorge on Art, displayed work at Saanich Municipal Hall and participated in the James Bay Market.  I have been Artist in Residence at Lochside and Prospect Lake Schools in Saanich and at the Grand Pacific Hotel.
