Born in England, I grew up in Boulder, Colorado, and  now live in Seattle. I'm an Art Instructor at Edmonds Community College in Lynnwood, WA where I teach painting, ceramics, and drawing. 

I received my MFA in Ceramics at the University of Washington in Seattle, and my BFA from Colorado State University in Fort Collins. Prior to beginning my career in teaching, I attended an artist residency program at  the Skowhegan School in Maine.

In my work, I continue to pursue with passion issues that are personal and pertinent to me.
