In 2010 she decided to pursue her interest in pottery through classes with recognized Toronto and Japanese potters. Most recently, she has been working independently at a local studio and has been creatively excited by her use of natural materials such as shells, seeds, corals, etc.
she combine her pottery and floral design together creating unique planters, Kokedamas, terrariums, etc.
