I have lived in the Penland area for five years and worked as a full time studio potter. I have long admired Penland School and the surrounding artist community for its vibrant and creative setting. I feel fortunate to be able to work and live in such a wonderful and nurturing area. In the past few years, I was awarded student assistantships in clay at Penland. I have also been fortunate to grow and learn in my work through generous mentoring from several established artists in the area. I am honored to be exhibiting in the Generosity of Spirit: The Gifts of Penland Artists fundraising exhibition at the Signature Gallery because I'm pleased to know it will inspire future clay or metal artists to get an opportunity to come to Penland with a scholarship. Coming full circle, knowing the work I create will help others create is a great way for me to say thank you to all of the artists in this area who have helped me.
