Made with love


I love playing in the dirt and the magical process of turning lumps of clay into beautiful functional and decorative objects. My pottery reflects the whimsy and colorful aesthetic of my images.Inspiration comes from my love for sweet kitties, the gift of flowers, and the blessing of travel. I am always studying and exploring new techniques and ways of making vessels and integrating my painting skills onto my pieces. It is my mission to create art for you which inspires joy and happiness. 

A world of whimsy

Flying cows, giant babies and a blue cat are just some of the inhabitants of my unfettered imagination come to life in my orignal acrylic and oil paintings. My paintings are in the collections of private homes, businesses and corporations across America.
