I started learning ceramics in high school in Seattle, Wa. I majored in Ceramics at the University of Washington, studying under Patti Warashina and Bob Sperry. I have taught in community centers in Seattle, and at the Sawtooth Center for Art in Winston Salem, as well as some workshops. In 1972 I began selling my work at art fairs, first in Washington, then on the East Coast after moving to Philadelphia in 1984, then to North Carolina in 1989. I am a member of Piedmont Craftsmen, based in Winston Salem. Clay continues to hold new directions and inspiration for me, still exploring and learning.
