I am a self-taught ceramicist living and working on a Mayne Island farm. A curious and life-long learner, my art education is on-going and consists of a combination of self-guided study, ceramic classes, symposia and workshops led by both Canadian and International Instructors. Captivated by the properties of clay at a young age while helping my Danish grandmother in her rural pottery, it was much later in 2016, that my own professional journey with clay began. After receiving a Bachelor’s of Agriculture and later a Master of Science (wildlife biology) and working for many years in the charitable sector with environmental education and conservation organizations I moved to Mayne Island where I now make pottery and farm. I am inspired by the elegance, complexity and resilience of nature. In it, subtle changes give rise to adaptive traits, speciation and the amazing variety of life on earth.
