Born and raised in Latrobe, PA I draw a lot of my inspiration from my Western PA surroundings and the tactile experience one has with pieces. After attending Edinboro University of Pennsylvania for my BFA in Ceramics, I moved to Colorado to pursue a high school ceramics teaching position. Over the years my students have been accepted to several juried exhibitions throughout the state of Colorado including the Colorado State University sponsored Pollinator Show.
In 2010, I was featured in a solo exhibition Little Tiny Dots, Big Clay Pots at the McFadden/Wright Gallery in Denver, CO. My work has also been on exhibition at the Jefferson County Teacher's Juried Exhibition throughout my time in the district. Recently, I have partnered with Guest House Shop in Denver, CO to feature local hand-made artwork within a completely shoppable home. My work has sold nationwide.
