Ceramic Artist based in New Brunswick, Canada

"My approach to my art and work has been constantly evolving. When I’m creating sculptural vessels that serve no direct function, I think about the shape, the contours, and its presence. A sculptural vessel regardless of size can hold a presence in a room and achieving that is my mindset when approaching that work."
