I grew up in a family of 6 children on Vancouver Island. My father was a faller, so life was about nature and living off the land.
As a young girl, I liked to work with my hands: sewing and designing barbie clothes, learning to knit, crochet, cross stitch, quilting, and tole painting. A friend introduced me to pottery when I was in my mid-forties and have not looked back.
I love all parts of the pottery making process. It is the most rewarding craft I have encountered. I am always thinking about pottery , glazes, forms, and processes; it is my happy place. When I am throwing on the wheel, concentration is a must. For me, all of my worries and stresses go away.
