She received a BA and ceramics post-baccalaureate studies from the University of Colorado at Boulder and a MFA from the Maine College of Art. She has exhibited her work nationally.

Stemming from family traditions of weaving, gardening, and jerry-rigging, my work centers around the ways we gather together. By softly weaving hemp clay vessels, I seek to create ceramic forms that sing to be used and shared daily. Both intimate and monumental, it is in the moments of connection that my work lingers.
