Fine Arts and Crafts
Inspired by nature, it is my intent to capture the beauty that surrounds me to create something built to last.
I took a leap of faith, embraced my life's journey and re-framed my focus from elementary educator to full time artist in 2006. I live in awe, surrounded by beauty and am grateful that clay cooperates and allows me to give it form and purpose. Conscious of the rhythm of my motions and the current of the surface, I like to create simple pleasures for both the eyes and hands. Inspired by nature and its infinite palate, I create with love in my heart and always strive to do my best.
I have a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Master of Arts in Teaching degrees from Arizona State and Towson University respectively. I apprenticed at the Carwile-Dodson Studio for Pottery Instruction and continue to broaden my skills by reading everything I can get my hands on, learning from people that I admire and experimenting.
All pieces are handmade with care, by me, in my studio nestled in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Western North Carolina. Often, while wearing pajamas.
