I enjoy creating utilitarian pottery that functions as fine art for daily use. The beauty of the natural world influences many of the design elements in my work.
I studied pottery at Florida State University and the University of Tennessee. In my formal career, I worked for the National Park Service for more than 30 years, with work assignments on the Atlantic coast and along the Appalachian mountains.
Now retired, I enjoy making pottery in my Hillsville, VA studio and teaching pottery classes in Galax at the Chestnut School of the Arts.
