"I am a proud born and raised New Brunswicker. I was formally trained here in NB at the NB craft college in Fredericton. My time spent at the craft college showed me the value and gratification that comes from the laborious work of being a potter.

Pottery is a dedicated practise and as the saying goes, you need 10,000 hours of practise in order to be considered a master. This mastery is something I am pursuing in my lifetime. My inspiration for my pots comes from our amazing New Brunswick landscape. I love the flora and fauna of our magnificent province and believe it’s one of Canada’s best kept secrets. The colours, the textures, the smell of our NB forests and the sound of our beautiful ever flowing Saint John River, right out to the Bay of Fundy, are all imprinted in my heart.

I like to celebrate life through warm cozy forms that can be held next to a crackling fire and sipped from while making family memories. People and connection are what I value, and I hope my pots can bring us all together over a delicious meal or a simple cup of freshly brewed coffee."
