Lopez has been home to my family for more than 40 years but it wasn't until 2010 that my husband Jim, myself and our Jack Russell Terrier, Feebee made it our home as well.

We came from Winthrop where I set up a small pottery studio as a hobby and began making the usual bowls, cups and plates. My family has a cottage soap industry on the Island and I thought it would be great fun to make small trays to go with the soap. It turns out that small trays have as many uses as there are small things to put in them! Small trays evolved into plates and platters and... As with any art, changes come with moods and discoveries so its always fun.

My wares are for sale at various venues on Lopez and in the summer, you'll find me at the Lopez Island Farmers' Market.
