The Essex County Artist Fund is Essex County Community Foundation’s response to the immediate and everyday needs of artists to be supported and lifted up across the county and across sectors. At ECCF, our philosophy is to build a creative ecosystem focused on awareness and appreciation for arts and culture, capacity building, collaboration, and cultural planning. Individual artists and arts/culture organizations are key to this network. www.eccf.org/creative-county.

Creative Practice: I am a full time ceramic artist. I also teach weekly pottery classes at my studio.
Artist Statement: My work is very nature and ocean inspired and I sell it in many locations including here at my gallery. I’m a big believer in the therapeutic value of working with clay and have watched it transform thousands of students here and build community for the past 25 years.
