SO BEAUTIFUL- REALLY ONE OF A KIND, THANK YOU FOR THE PRETTY GIFT WRAP.
Choosing happiness over a conventional career
After getting a bachelor's in English, getting married, and wondering just what the heck a girl who loves books, art, and theater is supposed to do besides work in a bank her whole life, I realized that the deep love for pottery I discovered in high school just wasn't going to go away. I also realized that working in retail or banking was not ever going to satisfy that creative fire.
So I looked up a place where I could take some pottery lessons, and never really looked back. Windfall Arts was born within a year of getting my hands back into clay. Selling my first little (frankly, terrible) works of art happened more quickly than I could have hoped, and I just kept making and making them, day in, day out. Needless to say, I improved.
I currently think of myself as a "learning professional" - that is, I'm still very focused on taking instruction and continuing my tactile education; though not apprenticed to any one artist, I have many who I admire and get to learn from by observing and taking classes.
Much of my creation is done in my home studio. Now that I'm a full-time mom, it is very helpful to have a space at home to create in! I do about 50/50 wheel-throwing and hand-building; in my shop you can usually tell the difference by whether something is smooth or textured (my handbuilt wares are usually stamped with lace, one technique I really love).
I'm happy to be here doing what I love.
