My Life in Words
I work in a small space with big ideas. After 30 years teaching art I made a leap into just creating art that I love
My passion is pottery & painting, mostly pottery functional ware, and painting. Over time the two medias have started to merge. Although I continue to work as a watercolor and acrylic painter, most of what you will see on this site is pottery.
I have taught art for ever it seems, starting when I was a student at Wichita State University. One of my painting professors asked if I would teach a watercolor continuing Education class at the university for a few extra bucks. After that class, with a little nudging from my Mother and because I loved every medium I was exploring, I changed my major to education and the rest is history, as they say. My passion even as a 12 year old was to just create art, and now that I'm a retired teacher I can finally live my dream.
