holds a BFA in Ceramics from the Alberta College of Art & Design and a Masters in Ceramic Design from Staffordshire University in ‘the potteries’ of Stoke on Trent, England. She currently works out of her studio in Medalta’s international artists in residence, exploring ceramics that combine traditional craft with industrial processes and new technologies. She is the Curator of Exhibitions and Collections at the historic Medalta Potteries, and a member of the board of directors of the Alberta Craft Council. Her designs have been exhibited nationally and internationally, most notably in FRESH, the 2011 British Ceramics Biennial’s flagship exhibition of top 40 emerging UK graduates, the London Design Festival 2012, and with FLUX at Maison Object Paris.  Her focus as a maker is to create well crafted, functional objects, designed to enrich the home & enhance everyday rituals.
