I am an emerging creator in the field of ceramics, currently based out of Nunavut, Canada. My early life was a nomadic one and I was lucky enough to live in some amazing places surrounded by natural beauty that shaped who I am today. These places I called home also inspire my work and my constant need to connect; person, place, and object. I am ever seeking a natural place of rest for my soul and mind, this drives me to create the world I wish to be surrounded by. I have been a maker and a builder my whole life and am ever drawn to and curious of handmade objects and how they are made.
Coming from humble and nomadic beginnings allowed the opportunity to view and touch the world in all its natural glory. My childhood shaped me into a curious being with the need to be outside and in the elements, bringing those elements into my immediate surroundings. Walking, camping and childhood adventures harvested untold pockets, baskets and buckets full of; pebbles, twigs, shells, flowers, and bric-a-brac, these were my treasures and they were treated as such. Stories written, songs sung, and places of honor awarded.
Drawn into a relationship with nature, develops my ability to express and shape a world celebrating an unbreakable bond. Within my practice I am seeking to provide a connection to person, place, and the elements through the medium of clay. Discoveries made in nature are my inspiration to draw literal connections to surface, form, and function.
The objects I create are strongly rooted in the natural world, drawing you in, holding you close in a familiar embrace.
