Creating is what I've always done best. I was inspired by my grandmother as I watched her braid rugs out of used clothing. My passion of knitting, quilting and creating jewelry led me to a love of ceramics. I love nothing more than creating unique pieces for others to enjoy whether it be a bead, button or functional dishware. When I'm not working on a piece of clay, you can find me rolling out pastry for my famous butter tarts or looking in the garden for the best rhubarb leaf to create a ceramic bowl out of.
