About The Work Earth, fire, water, air - pure alchemy. I am a mother, maker and artist drawing on the elements of nature to create pieces which ignite a feeling of joy for their users. I make large and small ceramic vessels which are inspired by gemstones and the ocean. The dishes fuse stained glass, 22k gold, resin and stoneware clay into a food safe piece which can be used for display, spices, rings, or whatever your heart desires. I also make mugs with slip painted animals and words meant to enrich and inspire others lives. I feel a spark of joy in my heart every time I open the kiln -- people can feel that -- and thats how I know its good work.
About Me I have lived in many different places around the United States and traveled quite extensively around Europe and the Middle East. Currently I am a mother of two, Holistic Health Coach, Reiki Master and Artist (I gave that one a capital A on purpose;) living in Natick, MA. In 1997 I graduated from Skidmore College with a BS in Art Education. After graduating I moved to Austin, TX and worked as a production potter and then onto Amelia Island, FL where I worked professionally as a mural artist, faux finisher and furniture painter. I moved to Boston in 2004 and was a middle school art teacher for Boston Public Schools in Roxbury, MA before having children and completing my Reiki Master training in 2012. In 2012 I co-founded and co-owned Palettes paint and wine studio in downtown Natick, which was sold to the new owners in 2015. After Palettes I turned my energy back to health and wellness and completed my certificate in Holistic Health Coaching from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition. Currently I am working mostly in clay, glass and gold — and loving every minute of it!
