I learned to throw pots at Wesleyan Potters in Middletown, Connecticut, my home town, when I was in high school. Fast forward about 35 years through a richly varied and lively period. At long last, I wound my way back to clay.
After moving with my husband to Manchester, New Hampshire, I began taking community education ceramics classes at The New Hampshire Institute of Art. Eventually, I enrolled in their Master of Art in Art Education degree program with a studio focus in ceramics. I'm happy to say I was a member of the first cohort to graduate from this program in July 2015!
That same July, my husband and I moved to Hillsborough, New Hampshire. We bought a lovely 1842 home with an attached barn where we could have our studios. In 2018 we renovated both levels of the barn, including all new electrical wiring, large windows providing a view from my potters wheel of our magical backyard, and skylights that fill the upper level with light! I can be found most days, enjoying life in my studio!
