About

In I grew up on a farm in Southern Ontario then in 1977 I moved to northern Ontario with my new husband.

In April 2009 I opened my Etsy shop , excited to sell on line. Six months later, September 2009, we moved to central Ontario . Adjusting to this community and finding my way around took time and energy. Learning and growing my Etsy website took a back seat. At times life became so hectic I had to put it on vacation mode and I wondered if I had time for a website.

Three and a half years later, 2013, I was settled in my new home. I no longer had to carry a map with me to find the shops in my new town. I was finally able to devote more time to my Esty site. That is when my pottery began to sell.

Even though The Butler's Creations has been open for five years I feel I have only been open for two years.

I am a believer in Jesus Christ, yet spent my life going from one art form to another, never feeling settled. A Christian lady told me my gift is to make pottery. Once I picked up the clay it felt right. I knew I had found my avenue of expression. Clay, photography and nature have allowed me to express my creativity. Weather I turn clay into cups and bowls for function or create a sculpture or vase to grace your home it is a joyful process for me.

When I am not making a piece of pottery I am hand painting porcelain paintings of birds and nature on my finished pieces.

I hope you enjoy my pottery and photography as much as I enjoy making it.
