Melody's Profile

About

~ I grew up and spent most of my life on the hot sunny beaches of South Florida. I now live in a beautiful little town in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains outside of Seattle. I have two shops on Etsy, Cocoa Marie and Misty Ridge Pottery. The pieces in these shops reflect the influence of the two very different states where I have lived.
~ I attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale and the University of Florida, graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree. I then worked full time for nine years hand painting custom fabrics, furniture and walls for the interior design trade. Then I moved to Washington State, and that's when I discovered my love of pottery. In addition to creating my art, I also teach some wonderful, amazingly creative students at a local art school.
~ If you'd like to see what's going on in the art studio visit: Cocoa Marie Pottery on Instagram.
