I am a Creative Director and Ceramic Artist living in Waleska, Georgia at the base of the Appalachian foothills.
With 20 years of experience in the design industry, I have worked at organizations large and small, for profit and nonprofit, West Coast and East Coast. My expertise includes branding, print, packaging, digital, experiential, and product design for Adobe. I have given talks at AdobeMax and How Design Live; have been interviewed by Communication Arts and The Dieline; and have been published in CommArts, Graphis, and GDUSA. As President of AIGA Atlanta, I led a Top-10 chapter within AIGA National, and served on the board of the Museum of Design.
I took my first ceramics class in the Fall of 2021 and immediately fell in love with the process. After signing up for a variety of local workshops, I purchased a wheel and an electric kiln for my basement studio. Through my work, I am interested in deconstructing classical forms, reinterpreting modern objects through clay, and pushing the limits of the medium. My current process is wheel-throwing and altering stoneware and porcelain that fires to Cone 6. It brings me such joy to open the warm lid of my Olympic kiln to see what discoveries await inside!
