I like to think of myself as the “accidental” potter. I started taking pottery lessons to deal with my depression in the winter time and as a way to deal with my grief after my father died. I did not expect to fall in love with the process or that I would end up selling ceramics.
In my real life, I am a healer, licensed acupuncturist and co-founder of a wellness clinic.
I believe that when as a collective, we are healthy on all levels – mental, physical and spiritual, we will be kinder to ourselves, the people around us and mother earth.
I have a strong desire to save the world and I’d like to think that making ceramics is one/my way of contributing to making the world, your world, a bit better — by bringing a bit of joy into your life when you are using your piece.
I am fiercely protective of the people I care about. I am constantly seeking knowledge and the truth.
I am a homebody. I read a lot. I love nature, the mountain, the ocean, funky socks, coffee and unicorn.
Fun fact: I once officiated a wedding for close friends on a boat.
I live and work on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish peoples, including the territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Stó:lō and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. Commonly known as Vancouver, British Columbia.
