After working years as a freelance journalist in Africa, then as a documentary filmmaker, and becoming a psychotherapist, I was fortunate to unexpectedly discover a new passion, working with clay. Today, my travels enable me to learn from master potters around the world.

I love to combine working on the wheel with enhancing by hand.

I delight in playing with color and form to create unique functional art to be used and cherished.
