I am the creative force behind Slow Studio. I've worked primarily in clay for almost 20 years. I was born in New York City, but spent my formative years amidst rural academia in Amherst Massachusetts. I discovered clay at the Massachusetts College of Art, Boston, but finished my BFA in ceramics at the University of Massachusetts.
I also hold a Master’s degree Art Education. In 2000, I lived in England for several years, where I taught art and ceramics at the Channing School, in Highgate, London. There I was exposed to the contemporary ceramics movement in and around London and Wales from which I continue to derive inspiration. I now teach ceramics at an independent boarding and day school and once again reside in the countryside of western Massachusetts.
