About me

Occupation Clay Artist
Location North Carolina, United States
Introduction I'm a VERY local yokel of sorts. My studio is my old room at my Mom's house (thanks Mom) and my favorite place to be is in the barn with my critters and the smell of hay. I've been working in clay since 2001 and enjoy the 'instant gratification of dimension' that it allows. I think my 'favorites' listed below are pretty indicative of my tastes. I'm a bit of a tom boy even in my 30's and much prefer by muck boots and jeans to frilly dresses and makeup.
