I began making pottery in 1975 by attending night school classes for 5 years. In 1985 I joined the Hill Potters Guild in Richmond Hill, where I found inspiration, knowledge and the desire to continue working with clay....
Since then I have joined and participated in sales and exhibitions with both Toronto Potters and Hill Potters as well as participating in exhibitions at the Richmond Hill and Thornbury libraries.
My work has been juried into shows at the Ontario Crafts Council and the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art, after which I was invited to participate in the Bowl Show at the Museum.
Making pottery has been a self-sustaining hobby and an important part of my creative life.
In 1992, during a trip to New Zealand and Australia, I was re-energized by both Maori and by Aboriginal dot painting. My current work continues my fascination with the new direction while being re-inspired at Woodlawn Pottery where I am a current member.
I am fortunate to have pots which reside in Canada, Florida, California, Japan, Germany and England.
