I was adopted as a baby from Vietnam and brought to the flatlands of Lubbock Texas. I grew up as a classically trained ballet dancer and then moved to New York City after receiving my BFA in Dance from the University of Texas at Austin. While in NYC, I discovered that pottery was truly a way to express myself and encompass my artistic endeavors. After 16 years of classical ballet training I decided to retire my point shoes and get my hands dirty in clay. I worked for over a decade as the lead thrower at Sunset Canyon Pottery, and am now working as a Studio potter in residence at Eye of the Dog Art Center in San Marcos,TX.
I am a maker of fancy porcelain pottery. Each pot is carefully and precisely executed with a mindful meditative approach to the overall design and decoration. I purposely want my pottery to feel tactility soothing and visually exciting.
I would like you to have a sense of wonderment and excitement each time you use my pottery...I know I still do each time I create one.
