About the Potter

I am originally from Southern Pines, NC and it is here that I learned the art of pottery. While attending Sandhills Community College in 1985, I found myself in the Art Department and saw the magic of wheel thrown clay. I was hooked. I received a degree in Fine Arts with a major in Ceramics.

I founded Grassy Creek Pottery in 1998 upon moving to the mountains of North Carolina. I joined together with a number of artists in Ashe County, and we founded the county’s first cooperative gallery. For eight years the gallery was a large part of my pottery life. I have since branched out in other directions. I am a member of the Ashe County Farmers’ Market and sell my work there on Saturdays. My work can be purchased online as well as Bohemia Gallery, the Vintage Locket and The Ashe County Arts Council  in West Jefferson, NC and The Ashe County Arts Council and Hands Gallery in Boone NC.
