She has taught workshops and master classes extensively throughout the US and abroad and upon her return to Seattle in 2013 found ‘Rat City Studios’, a large community studio where she realizes alongside her independent work, her skills as a teacher and facilitator for the young artists who gather around her, connecting people and communities through the love of clay.
