I first did wheel throwing in high school in Burnaby and was lucky to have potters as teachers who encouraged me to take classes at the Shadbolt center in Burnaby but like most youth it was adventure time and clay work was put aside. Twenty seven years later, in 2004, I decided to try wheel throwing again. I took a beginners course with Gillian McMillan at the Port Moody Arts Center followed by more courses taught by Clive Tucker. I take a lot of workshops to learn more techniques and broaden my skills. My work now has shifted to hand building functional ware which I decorate with brightly coloured under glazes. I am also a member of the B C Potters Guild and The Tri City Potters Group. My work can be seen at the Gallery of BC Ceramics on Granville Island.
