Snail Story

While I was in high school, I experienced my first of many depressive episodes and had no idea what to do. During that time, I met Neil, my first garden snail. Neil taught me to go at my own pace, see vulnerability as growth, and find beauty in simple everyday moments.

Through Neil, I learned the important lesson of patience and perspective, as seen in the artwork I create. The pieces I make represent mental health and personal growth through waiting. Whether it be growing beneath the soil or kicking your feet under a seemingly calm surface, the hard work and energy you pour into your world does not go unnoticed. 

This website, my love for ceramics, and everything I do, is an ode to Neil, since without him, I wouldn't be where I am today :)
