Welcome! I am a ceramic artist and art lover who is particularly fond of figurative sculpture and illustration, printmaking, historical fashion, vintage photos and illustration, and fairy tales. Enjoy!

I have opened my Etsy shop again! I have prints, cards, and sculptures and have added more mugs, wall plaques, and figurines!

The 28th annual Alabama Clay Conference was held in February. It was a wonderful weekend full of artists, demonstrations, vendors, lectures (including Garth Clark, Bonnie Kemske, and Magdalene Odundo), and community!

I was asked to be a demonstrating artist assistant this year, so I got to help Dirk Staschke by using his press-molds to make vegetables for his sculpture. Dirk was a nice guy and I had a fabulous experience!

Here are a few photos of the demonstrating artists at work!
