Sierra discovered her passion for working with clay in 2007, and it has been a significant part of her life ever since. In grade 10, she began creating at eARTh studios, and from there, she went on to complete a two-year ceramics program at local school Kootenay School of Arts. During that time, Sierra served as the studio assistant at eARTh Studios and worked closely with Diane Walters to teach beginner classes and manage open studios. Years later, her love for pottery extends beyond creating; she enjoys sharing her knowledge with others and inspiring them to pursue their own creative endeavours.
