My work is a bridge between ceramics and public art. I am primarily interested in how art can be a vehicle for social change. My work strives to reframe our relationship to land and agriculture, and to create meaningful ways to connect with natural resources. Clay, a medium that finds its way into every home - as a sink, a dish or a decorative object - is a ubiquitous and tactile material. I use it as a springboard for public engagement. I collaborate with community members who create narratives that I  weave into the pieces I make and events I facilitate. I have been working as a public artist for 11 years and as a professional ceramic artist for over 20 years
