I worked for many years as a social worker in the field of international adoption, which was satisfying and fulfilling.
However, I had always wanted to learn to make pottery and admired the work of others, particularly those who created functional work, such as Warren MacKenzie. To that end, I began classes at The Potters' School, later also taking classes at Feet of Clay and Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, where I joined the Ceramics Guild. Since 2010 I have had my own studio at my home in West Newton, MA and began working in fused glass in 2014. I have exhibited my work at Lexington Arts and Crafts Society's "Ceramics in New England" (2008), Bring it to the Table (2010), and Five Elements (2013), and at sales such as LACS' Artisans' Market and Holiday Marketplace, Riverview Crafters (2011), and First Unitarian Society in Newton Art Show (2010, 2013, and 2015) and others in the Boston area. My work can be found at Periwinkle Glassworks, Artitudes, and Lexington Arts and Crafts Society, as well as at my studio showroom during Newton Open Studios.
