I have an associate degree from Virginia Western Community College in commercial art. I have a B.A. in fine arts from Roanoke College with a concentration in pottery. I am an active member of the Blue Ridge Potter's Guild and a retired elementary art teacher.
In 2010, I started working in clay again and selling my work at open air markets. For the past two years, I have had private pottery instruction from my mentor and friend, Ellen Braaten. Ellen is an adjunct professor in the architecture department of Virginia Tech. Her support and guidance have been key to my success!
Twenty some years after college, I have finally grown up to be an artist! It is as great as I always thought it would be. I hope you enjoy the pottery that I make and that you can see it in person at one of my shows. See the Sales Events page.
I enjoy personally selling my work, to hear peoples' opinions, and get new ideas. I enjoy meeting the people who will use the pottery.
I also welcome commissions, with generally a three to four week delivery date. See the Contact Info page.
