Born in Edinburgh, Scotland, I spent vacation time at North Berwick, where my family runs the Tantallon Studios. I co-authored A Visual Language; Elements of Design with my father David Cohen, a renowned ceramic artist who completed The Basics of Throwing.
“It’s important for the student to understand, apply and experiment with visual language. We develop a language through which to research, develop and realize ideas visually.”
I completed my MFA in drawing and painting at Edinburgh College of Art (Scotland) in 1999. I taught art and design while working as a production potter in Portland, Oregon before moving to Massachusetts in 2004. I also taught in Scotland for seven years, developing my experience and passion for teaching art.
