As a handbuilder, I enjoy using a lot of different textures. What I did not enjoy was searching through a box for my texture mats and sometimes finding them wrinkled or folded over. I was hanging up some things in my closet one day and thought "why don't I use these pants hangers to hang my texture mats. So I gathered up extra hangers and headed to the studio. Hummmm, where to hang them? The back of my ware cart worked great….and the sides. Now, when a store clerk asks if I want the hangers, I always say yes to the pants hangers!

I have always enjoyed creating art using things I find in nature. Several years ago I attended a festival event where a potter was demonstrating throwing on the wheel ..... I was instantly hooked. I started taking classes at the Sawtooth School for Visual Art in Winston-Salem, NC and now have a studio in my home and occasionally teach at the Sawtooth School. I am primarily a handbuilder, but occasionally work on the wheel. Although I make some functional pieces, I gravitate more toward creating art that can be used in landscaping. In addition to working with clay, I also make concrete sculptures, and sometimes combine the two. If I'm not in my studio, I am probably on the lake bass fishing or working in my flower gardens. I am retired and enjoying doing the things I wasn't able to do while working . In addition to fishing, I enjoy reading and traveling.
