I was born and raised in Marienthal, Kansas. I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Wichita State University in 1995, before continuing to study at the graduate level at the University of North Texas. I now live in Flat Rock, North Carolina with my family, work out of my home studio, do shows regularly, and am featured in many galleries in the U.S. My work has been exhibited in shows such as Ceramics USA and published in Clay Times and Southern Living. I am a founder of the WNC Pottery Festival and a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild. I primarily make functional, dishwasher, oven, and microwave safe, pottery- but also make raku display tiles.
