"I am a Memphis native and ceramic artist. My work is predominantly wheel thrown, hand painted, and slip trailed. The majority of the work I show and sell is functional pottery. I explore through 2D work and sculpture as well. My work and my Being are fueled by nature and the human form.
My forms and motifs are informed by the varying terrain and foliage I’ve experienced through life and travels. Memphis' lush summers and bitter winters have inspired me for as long as I can remember. I am enamored with conversation between humans and nature."
