Since I was a little girl growing up in a working class town outside of Boston, I always wanted to be an artist. I drew every day, and went away to college in New York City, to Parsons School of Design. There I learned how to really draw, and think, and most importantly, how to hold a hammer.
After many adventures, including finding pottery, I came back with my husband and young son to my hometown, had two more kids (!), and continued to want to be an artist.
Currently I am making functional pottery and sculpture in terra cotta, glazed in the maiolica style. I teach ceramics at the New Art Center in Newton, MA and at Mudflat Pottery School in Somerville, MA. I think that, finally, I can call myself an artist!
