I work with porcelain and children. My love of clay began as a high school student and has grown exponentially. I am a co-founder and co-owner of the Minneapolis Clay Collective. Our studio is located in the arts district of Northeast Minneapolis. We have a gallery and rent working space to other ceramic artists. I’ve also been an elementary and junior high school teacher for 27 years at Southside Family Charter School. It is an incredible inner city school in Minneapolis with social justice at its core and travel studies as part of its curriculum. These two passions keep my life balanced.
