On Etsy since 2016

How I ended up retired and playing in mud!

I have always loved drawing, arts and crafts, anything like that as far back as I can remember. I had my first introduction to clay in high school art and knew I’d found a medium I loved! There was no opportunity to explore it further until I was a mom at home with my daughter and joined a pottery club. While I enjoyed the wheel work, I loved the freedom and creativity available with hand building. Once a week at the club was just not enough to satisfy my creative urges, so I started doing dough art at home. I began selling the dough art pieces at the farmer’s market and that expanded to bigger and better craft sales until it was a full-time job selling retail and wholesale.

At that point of my life I was on my own and really needed to get out more, so back to the workforce for about 15 years, but I missed the craft shows. Now I am retired and moved from Alberta to the west coast where my daughter Krista, her hubby and my grandchildren live. Finally, I have lots of time and the opportunity to do clay once again!

My daughter is very artistic helps me with ideas and colours to keep me up to date and makes pottery fairy garden things and body vases when she is not working as an EA.

Before Covid I was doing a lot of local markets and craft fairs but now sell primarily on Etsy. You can find some of my things at Island-ish in Nanaimo and Sea Thrift Artisan Boutique in Qualicum Beach, BC here on beautiful Vancouver Island.

    I am retired and live with a very large rescue dog on beautiful Vancouver Island Canada. I make hand built pottery, both decorative and functional without a potter's wheel. The result is unique organic one-of-a-kind pieces with no two exactly alike

    I work as a teachers aid and live in Nanaimo with my hubby and 3 kids, a boy 20, step son 18 and a girl 9. I provide lots of ideas and keep my mom up to date on colour and trends and make fairy garden decorations.
