I am a full-time studio potter and ceramic instructor living on the coast of Maine.
I grew up in a Italian American family in a town just far enough south of Boston to still have farms and a short enough commute to Boston to attend the art museums often. My fondest memories are at the dinner table surrounded by extended family members and delicious food. I am sure this has had a profound influence on my desire to make functional objects.
After high school I moved to Maine to attend Maine College of Art in Portland where I earned a BFA in ceramics. Maine is also where I discovered true natural beauty from the varied beaches to the rugged mountains, I love it all.
I eventually moved to Mid-Coast Maine and worked as a production potter for 18 years. During that time I returned to school to complete a post-graduate certification in education. I have worked as an art teacher in grades K-12.
I have a cozy-studio nestled in amongst tall pines, I enjoy my morning commute which consist of 20 short steps from my house. There I find the solitude to create and joy in self-expression. I also welcome visitors for lessons, shopping or just a friendly chat.
