I have been playing with clay for more than 20 years. There is no better medium, in my opinion. I love to throw and hand-build and go back and forth as the mood takes me.
I began just playing around and self-teaching but quickly realized I would better benefit from solid instruction.
I attended and received my BFA from the University of Arizona in 2011. I have continued to learn and teach.
When I found TCAC it felt too good to be true. This is a fabulous little community of clay people. I love to teach what I love to others but also feel it is vital to always be in a learning mode...we can always learn!
I have been making art of one sort of another for as long as I can remember.
Painting, Drawing and Printmaking are the media I concentrated on in college while pursuing my BFA. After graduating I became an Art Teacher and was certified to work with Pre-K, Elementary, Secondary, and Adult Education. For a short time I worked with adults living with Cerebral Palsy doing Art Therapy.
I have been exploring clay for over 30 years working in both private and group studios. The field is so vast and the knowledge base so broad that I am always learning from peers and students alike.
As a published illustrator and digital artist, I feel very fortunate to have experienced many artistic media allowing me a wide and diverse range of personal expression.
