I have an associate degree from Virginia Western Community College in commercial art, and 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 pieces at open air markets. For the next two years, I took private pottery instruction from my mentor and friend, Ellen Braaten. Ellen is a retired 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 finally became an artist! It is as great as I always thought it would be. I hope you enjoy my pottery 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 ,as well as, 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.
