Many people say that you are the person you choose to be. In my case, I wanted to be many things: an industrial designer, architect, interior designer, artist. Anything related to art.

Many people say that you are the person you choose to be. In my case, I wanted to be many things: an industrial designer, architect, interior designer, artist. Anything related to art. I ended up choosing ceramics and print making but that doesn't mean I won't do the others some time later on in my life.

To tell you the truth, I never thought I was going to be a ceramic artist. Everyone that I introduce my work to, thinks that I am a ceramic artist because I used to be surrounded by it while I was living at my parent's place, where my mom started her own ceramic business. But no, I never saw myself becoming a ceramic artist.

Everything started when I was in my second year of Emily Carr University. One of my friends told me about a wheel throwing class that was going to be taught in the coming semester. Since I was missing some credits, I decided it to take it.
I was enchanted by this new method of creating things with my hand. I couldn't stop thing of making more things, like cups, mugs, sculptures, plates big or small pieces, and my mind was constantly thinking about what to do next.
One of my teachers told me that in ceramics you can do anything you wanted, you just have to figure out the way of doing it, whether it was simple or very complex. It is impressive that from a small ball of clay you can make a jar or a plate in less than 20 mins. This concept blew my mind and since then I kept on getting impressed by the things that I can make.
With my work I want to portray the raw and the new. The raw part being the clay, its color and texture, and the new being the unique look and sense of purity it gives when you apply different glazes.

Currently, I have been sharing a studio with Darcy Grainer in Chinatown, Vancouver for almost a year where both of us free our creativity and produce unique pieces on a constant basis.
Also, I am now starting to sell my work, keeping a positive attitude and confidence knowing that people will enjoy them. As always, everything is slow at the beginning but I believe that if you are positive everything will work out. Read Less
