I live in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada just east of a cute little town called Sonora. Located in the gold country of California, adjacent to Yosemite National Park.
I have a ceramic art studio in my back yard, kiln and all. I watch birds, squirrels, deer and other various wildlife stroll by while I'm working.
I have a degree in early childhood education. I've spent most of my career teaching preschool, ceramics and ESL.
I'm now teaching ceramic workshops at Mountain Oak Charter school, selling my work locally and pursuing my online business.
