About me

Professional

If you're looking at this website, I'm guessing that a few years of Engineering, a Diploma in International Development and a Masters ...yes, still in engineering...are not what you're expecting to hear about.  Yet, there is a precision to my work that always makes people nod when they hear that I studied engineering.

​Long ago I choose mechanical engineering over fine arts.  But nothing is carved in stone, and when I returned home from working in Nepal with UNICEF I found myself moving in new directions.  Decades later, I'm making my living as a potter.

 

Like many who work in the arts, my work week embraces diverse activities.  I spend half of my time in my own studio, working on my own projects.  The other half of my work week is spent teaching ceramics to adults and children in a program run by a really great community association.  I also run the pottery studio in that facility.  Two or three days a month, I dust myself to spend the day at Galerie Côté Créations, where my work can be found between shows and sales.
