My journey with clay has been a life long one, I grew up in a potters studio. I am a second-generation artist. I find myself blessed and fortunate to study under master ceramicist, Miky and the late Steve Cunningham. (Aka Mom and Dad) I began doing shows in 2013 as an emerging artist at the Des Moines Arts Festival. I studied at the University of Iowa, receiving a BA in Health and Human Physiology, BA in Psychology, and a minor in Dance. But through it all I maintained my passion and love for art, particularly ceramics. I continue to explore the endless possibilities and versatility of clay. I am not a potter but an artist. Clay is my vehicle of choice to transport my imagination into the physical world.
