I have always been a hands on type of person. As a child, I was surrounded by science, craft, and family. Naturally my nerdy childhood self wanted to be a science teacher until I realized that there's much more to science than just experiments. So for college, I looked towards the arts.
I've worked in many other mediums before I found clay two years into college. It was in a sculpture class that I immediately fell in love with working in three dimensions. Fast forward six years and here I am making art to bring smiles to faces and whimsy to homes. Many of my influences shine through, as well as my love for animals, color, and bad puns. Humor and making helps me cope and connect, which is ultimately why I make the things I make.
