My Bio

Me

I am a ceramicist and eggshell artist that enjoys combining nature with art. My focus has always been on nature specifically plants and insects and combining it in unique ways. Always looking for the next interesting plant or insect to turn into a design.

My Work

Functional and clean. I like to combine functional items with natural surface decorations with a unique vintage flair.

My Story

I started out with a background in graphic design and drawing & painting and in 2008 I discovered Ukrainian pysanky art on eggshells and fell in love with it. I love that it combines something so common as an eggshell with something so unique and detailed as the pysanky writings.

Flash forward to fall of 2018 when I was motivated to go back to school and start ceramics which I had always love doing but never seemed like a dream I could make happen. In December of 2018 I started on the journey of setting up a home studio for ceramics and have had that dream come to fruition in March of 2019 with the purchase of my very own kiln.

I look forward to many years of creating ceramics for everyone to enjoy and the occasionally decorated eggshell.

Been updating a lot this week as I recently got a new camera and got inspired to update my pictures of my eggs. I am really enjoying taking the pictures as it combines several things I love which is art, antiques, and flowers! felt this was a great way to highlight my eggs. Some of my new inspiration has come from a friend who has motivated me to go back to college and see a second degree so I am excited to start working on that this fall semester. I still have over 60 eggs to photograph and edit pictures of and in addition to that I have about 15 new designs I need to get ready for posting so I expect to be busy in the coming weeks. Enjoy

Nov Update

I know I have not update new items in awhile but in Sept I noticed I had several issues with my Eggs. First the UV Sealant I had been using which normally works great but I had stored about 30 eggs together in the heat of my un-Air conditioned studio over the summer and they all stuck together.  So for the last month I have been pealing the coat off or repairing it where I could. out of the 30 only one was actually damaged. The second issue I had was mice got into a batch of finished eggs and chewed holes through them!! They also ate my candles too! So it has been a process and then after the election I have just been too upset with things to

Devious Journal Entry

Devious Journal Entry

Hello Everyone! 2016 so far has been a busy year. A new development is that I am now a member of a local Denton Texas Artist Collective called http://www.brickhauscollective.com/ and have been able to be apart of their shows and also workshops! I did a Xmas workshop last Dec and I will be holding a march workshop coming up so I hope to have photos to post of these events. Also with being apart of the collective it gives me a workshop space outside of my house to work on Pysanky and store my dyes which is great as I now have 48 jars of dye! I also got off my lazy butt and dyed tester eggs so I can see all the colors better and it has helped
