I was born and raised in the South of France, in the Provence countryside. I came to the US in 1993 as a Chemistry student, spending 5 wonderful years on Long Island before driving cross country with my diploma in hand to start a new job in the pharmaceutical industry in San Diego. Pottery was not on the radar until 2004 when I took an introduction class to ceramics at the Educational Cultural Complex, as a way to bring more art into my scientific life. I got hooked pretty fast! A few years later I started taking classes at Clay Associates, a clay center in Normal Heights, to further develop my skills. The passion for clay took me over completely and in 2010 I turned a room in my house into a small independent ceramics studio, with my own kiln and potter’s wheel. What started as a hobby became a full time occupation.
