I began learning how to make pots in my first pottery course at Indiana University of Pennsylvania in 2000. After graduating with a BFA in 2003 I moved to Pittsburgh and began volunteering and then teaching in the education programs at the Carnegie Museum of Art. In 2005, I began teaching at the Manchester Craftsmen’s Guild, where I taught children and adults ceramics for eight years. Since 2013, I have been making and selling my pots full time through my pottery business Wolf’s Den Pottery as well as teaching at the Society for Contemporary Craft and at Stray Cat Studio in Beaver Falls, PA. I continue to learn, grow and transform myself and the clay through the process of making pots. I seek to replicate the beauty, joy and wonder I experience in nature into my work.
