Nothing is more gratifying than taking something as simple as clay and turning it into something beautiful and useful. I love that I am making something that interacts with people and brings them joy and/or contentment.
I started my professional career as an Illustrator, back when people used brushes and actual paint. After graduating from art school, I spent 6 years in TV animation as a background painter. Then took a detour and taught middle school for 5 years. I returned to my career in art as a Motion Graphics for the next 12 years making commercials, documentaries, and presentations for various clients. While I was freelancing we relocated to Hong Kong for almost a year for my husband’s job. I wasn’t able to get a work visa, so I decided to take a ceramics class to pass the time. Needless to say, I fell in love and became addicted to clay.
