I'm artist and instructor based in Northwest Arkansas, and I grew up surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of the Ozarks. At an early age I fell in love with the fresh air and freedom of being outdoors, so I spent most of my childhood outside in the woods and fields of my family’s farm. Today, most of my inspiration comes from nature, and I strive to incorporate its wonderful lines, colors, and textures into ceramic vessels that can be used and enjoyed in the home.
My clay body and glazes are custom recipes that I mix from dry ingredients of the highest quality. I throw each vessel on the pottery wheel, and I glaze and decorate each piece individually. From beginning to end, every bit of my work is made by my hands.
My goal as a creator is to bring a little joy into everyday doings, to add a little comfort to those small moments we normally don’t give much thought. It’s a wonderful thing when we love the objects we use and surround ourselves with every day.
