While I’d worked with clay as a teenager, there was a many-year gap before I returned to it; we built my studio shortly after moving to Athens, Ohio in 2012. My careers in classical music and instructional/UX design were user focused and I strive to bring that awareness to my work as a potter.
I sell my pottery at the Athens Farmer's Market / Art Market most Saturday mornings from 9am - noon. You can also purchase my work in Athens at Hyacinth Bean Florist, Shrivers Pharmacy & Wellness Center, Southeast Ohio History Center gift shop, Dairy Barn Arts Center, Bella Vino and Lamborns.
I currently serve as the board president of the Athens Art Guild. Sledding Hill Pottery mugs, along with artwork from other guild artists, are showcased at Casa Nueva throughout January, 2019.
