After receiving a Degree in Painting from NYU, I began working in clay in 1991, desiring a three-dimensional canvas. The intersection of painting and clay has fueled more than two decades of exploration in ceramics.
In 1995, I received an MFA in Ceramics from RISD. I was awarded Massachusetts’ highest honor -- an Artist Fellowship in Crafts in 2009. My work has been shown in numerous exhibits across the country and internationally. This year I was invited by Bai Ming to be an Artist in Residence at The Shangyu Celadon Modern International Center in China. The work created there will be exhibited at The Shangyu Museum of Art. Last year I had the honor of being a Blanc de Chine Resident Artist working with China’s most precious and whitest porcelain in Dehua, China. The artwork created in Dehua went on to Beijing and was exhibited at The “Blanc de Chine” International Ceramic Award Works Exhibition. Other highlights include American Museum of Ceramic Art, Howard Yezerski Gallery, San Angelo Museum of Art, The Archie Bray Foundation, and permanent collections of The Crocker Art Museum, CA, Lawrence Art Center, KS, and The Staten Island Institute of Arts and Sciences, NY.
