As a kid, I enjoyed drawing and designing. I started college as an art major, but after a semester switched to the social sciences. As an adult, I loved the feel of the earth in my hands, as well as seeing beautiful plants spring to life in the garden. I was fascinated by potters working at the wheel. These threads drew me to clay. After clearing the hurdle of being my first teacher’s “challenge student”, I gradually assimilated the techniques of many wonderful teachers at Duke Craft Center, Claymakers, John C. Campbell Folk School, the Odyssey Center and Penland. I now enjoy making nature-related functional work and small animal sculptures. I’m a member of Orange County Artists Guild and N.C. Clayworks Guild.
I have been a consignor at WomnCraft for several years and welcome you to go by the store and see my work.
