I discovered clay work on my first trip to Mexico where I had the opportunity to spend some time in the workshop of Amado Galvan in Tonalà. Back in Montreal, I joined a group of artists at a community centre and later started to study ceramics at ‘’Centre de Céramique Bonsecours’’ and later participated in specialized workshops with professional ceramists in Quebec and abroad. For many years, I taught classes to adults and children in cultural centres. Participants could explore their own creativity and create pieces to be proud of. Over the years, I experimented with raku and horsehair techniques, played with engobes and vitreous slips; a nice way to experiment with colours and create unique pieces! Even if most of my work is done on the wheel, I keep being drawn back to hand building. It allows me to let my inspiration flow without limits, try new ideas and play with colours and shapes. And the results always have a dimension of surprise to them. Sometimes good, sometimes not so good. After a career as a cultural event organizer, I have recently reconnected with ceramics and am now spending more time in my studio playing with mud and creating funky as well as utilitarian pieces to be enjoyed every day around the house.
