Reception with the artist Saturday 6th, 5-8pm
I grew up in Northwest New Jersey with a ferret, horse, dog, cat, bird, iguana, lizards, snakes, and rabbits. After graduating with a BFA in Ceramics from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA I went on to complete two residencies at the Cub Creek Foundation in Appomattox, VA and Greenwich House Pottery in NY, NY. Drawing and painting was my first love and I continued to search for the perfect marriage of image and clay while completing my MFA at Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville. After graduate school in 2008 I had the opportunity to work as a resident and teacher at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY and as a summer resident at the Archie Bray Foundation in Helena, MT. I taught ceramics as Assistant Professor of Art at Montana State University in Billings from 2010-2014. I live and work in beautiful New Bern, NC with my two sons Richie and Emmett and husband Brian.
