Bio

I first encountered ceramics while completing my bachelor’s degree at Marymount Manhattan College in 2016. Though I devoted four years of undergraduate studies to photography and art history, I decided, in my last semester, that clay was the direction I was headed once I graduated. Knowing that I would no longer have access to the resources provided by a college, I sought the advice of my then ceramics professor who suggested I look into the work-study program at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. The following fall I spent six weeks as a work-study at Arrowmont and got my first insight into the expansive world of contemporary American craft. In the spring of 2017 I moved to Brooklyn NY where I pursued jobs that would allow me to continue to learn about the medium. In the summer of 2017 I began working at Gasworks NYC, a community clay studio. The generosity and compassion of the owners of Gasworks has been the catalyst for my growth as a potter. Through my employment at this studio I have gained a deep understanding of the materials and processes involved in the craft. I hope to take the knowledge I have gained from Gasworks and continue pursuing education in ceramics for the rest of my life.
