About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Artist, teacher
Location Brooklyn, NY, United States
Introduction I'm an artist and I teach art and ESOL. I paint, mostly, but also design and make books and calendars using my art and photography. I started pottering about 4 years ago and quickly became addicted. I started this blog, several years ago, as a record of my sketchbooks. Then I didn't post for a few years. This year I started up again with my painting-a-day project, which has become more of a painting-a-week. Then I decided to challenge myself to making ceramic teapots, just because a teapot is the hardest thing to do.
