After receiving my Bachelor of Fine Arts from Alfred University School of Art and Design in 2017, I moved to Minneapolis Minnesota for a one year artist residency at Northern Clay Center as a 2017 - 2018 Fogelberg Studio Fellow. The city was my new home. I fell in love with the Clay Center, the city and the bountiful artist community. As my residency year was coming to a close, I was granted a personal studio space to rent and continue to work alongside the resident artists and fellow studio artists. I feel fortunate to be represented in Northern Clay Center's sales gallery and participate in the exhibitions and events held in the space. My focus now is to continue to further develop my work utilizing the access to materials and soda kiln in the studio, and be present in the Minneapolis clay community.
