About The Artist
Swampgirl Pottery produces an unlikely marriage of primitivism and mid century modernism.
I love the spare clean lines of Mid Century Modern design. I am equally inspired by the lyrical rawness of nature. This has produced an unlikely marriage of modernism and primitivism in my work.
I was born in a small sleepy Louisiana town where I started making art at the age of 5. Immediately upon college graduation, I moved to France, where I spent 4 amazing years. Leaving France was only made tolerable by the creative energy I discovered in Manhattan, where I lived the last 30+ years. In NYC I was the owner of a photography agency. My stable of artists specialized in food photography.
I soon discovered the food photography industry was in need of unique beautiful vessels for food to be photographed in. This is how I started making pottery. My work is in the collections of all the major NYC prop houses and has appeared in many food magazines and cookbooks.
