I have loved clay and making pottery from the time I was a little kid…guess that first sniff of PlayDoh as a preschooler really got me hooked! But I’ve always collected teapots and plates and interesting ceramic objects from yard sales, thrift stores and ultimately started collecting pottery from potters whom I admire. I first starting taking classes in college as a hobby and loved taking workshops over the many years with renowned artists whom I admire such as Julia Galloway, Sunshine Cobb, Steven Hill, Lorna Meaden, Adam Field, and Jill Hinkley, to name but a few.
