As a child, I spent hours watching my Danish grandmother create pottery in a rustic log cabin studio outside Port Alberni. After receiving degrees in agriculture and wildlife biology and working for many years in the charitable sector, my own journey with clay began. I moved to Mayne Island where I now make pottery and farm. In 2021 Kim and I opened the Mayne Island Clay Works.
In my work I explore connections - tangible connections such as those between a handmade object and its user or the relationship between maker and clay but also more ethereal connections such as those between people, species, the built and natural world and the shifting connections between memory and time.
