I have been working as a professional potter for 20 years. I was first introduced to the clay medium in 1979 while studying art at EWU and it was love at first touch. I studied under Bill Sage and finally received a B.A. in 1988.
I became the resident potter at the Y.W.C.A. in 1983 and a member of the “Pottery Place Plus” in 1986. In 1989 I quit my job and the “Pottery Place Plus” to go to graduate school at the University of Oregon and received an M.F.A. degree in 1991. I returned to Spokane in ’91 and renewed my membership at the “Pottery Place Plus” in ’92.
