*Education & Experience*
I began my Ceramics career, as a potter's assistant at The Poddery in Mathews County, Virginia, when I was sixteen. I later studied art at Longwood College and Mary Washington College. I graduated with a B.A. in Studio Art from Mary Washington College in 2000. I am currently pursuing my teaching license in art at the University of Richmond. I attended a pottery workshop at the Penland School of Crafts in North Carolina in 2003.
