Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, I received my BFA in Ceramics from Bowling Green State University and my MFA from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities. I returned to Cleveland in 2013 to pursue my artistic career after living in Minneapolis, MN for close to seven years.
My practice is three-fold: pottery, sculpture, and public art. Within each of these practices, I focus using concept and craft to create a transformative experience for my audience. A cup can do that. An immersive installation can do that too. Art is so wonderful in that way!
