I moved to Taos, New Mexico in 2010, after graduating from Western Michigan University with a degree in Art Education and Ceramics. The time I spent at Taos Clay as a resident artist helped form my direction in clay and I spent several years continuing to develop my practice as a studio manager, member, intern coordinator and Empty Bowls Liaison at Taos Clay and I'm grateful for my time there. I currently have a small home studio where I create and teach art at a local school one day each week.
