Biography

Mother and mentor to 3 amazing humans. Studio potter.

I am a maker—A maker of home (wherever my family is) and other objects. An artist at my core, I create daily. I believe we are all artists. Especially our children.

I started my journey as a potter and as a mother 15 years ago. These journeys keep my heart grounded and adventurous. Mine is a family rooted in home-learning and entrepreneurship with a love of travel. We are anchored by our community and mountain forest home in British Columbia, Canada.

Cultivating time to make pots, art, bread, earrings, friendship, songs, or mittens is a creative act in itself. I truly believe that if we can teach our children to tend their creative spirits, the world will be a better place for it. I am ever inspired by children and teens and the possibilities born when their creativity is nurtured.
It is my honor to spend time supporting children in creating art with the at the Family Adventure Summit in Ubud. The setting and community are sure to inspire some amazing art!
