Chris: I was born in Springfield, Ohio and raised on a farm near town. I have made art all of my life. I hold a BFA in painting and ceramics from Miami University in Oxford Ohio. I was a studio potter for over 10 years in Springfield engaging in many art shows as well as one man and group exhibitions garnering numerous awards for excellence. Due to several factors, I left this life behind to train as an Art Therapist. Art as a solitary pursuit now needed to include others. I received a Master of Art Therapy degree from Wright State University in Dayton Ohio and have been a practicing board certified Art Therapist for the past 21 years. I currently work with populations with moderate to severe mental illness as well as addictions in Delaware. I have taught pottery for over 10 years on the community level in Ohio, Arizona, and Delaware. But I've never stopped making art and pots - it is soul work...
