Following my graduation from Florida Atlantic University in 1999, my husband and I relocated to Cary, North Carolina, where I began teaching and managing the ceramics department at the Jordan Hall Art Center. During my seven years in Cary, I also taught several art courses at the Cary Senior Center and the N.C. State Craft Center. Classes that I taught ranged from Drawing and Painting, to Raku, Hand building Techniques, Wheel Throwing and Glaze Exploration.
Although well-established in Cary, our love of nature and mountainous terrain drew us to the Blue Ridge Mountains of western North Carolina. In 2005 we permanently relocated to Asheville, North Carolina where simply walking outside offers an exhilarating source of creative inspiration.
