About the artist

I began to throw in the early 70’s (1970s, not my age) in Mississippi. It just began as a lark, something interesting to try; then I was hooked. I continued my pottery in Virginia: showing in galleries, in craft shows and as a potter-in-residence. My son, who was a baby at the time, slept in his basket below the display table at craft shows, and watched me throw from his swing. Then back to Georgia where I continued my pottery for several more years. That period included teaching pottery on the library channel, receiving a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts for an arts and crafts television show and eventually moving onto full time television production. We lived in Atlanta for many years where I continued my television career and growing our family, pottery took a back seat. In Atlanta, I was a television producer and staff announcer with WXIA-TV (and occasionally on-camera), then joined CNN as a news producer and eventually WSB-TV as a producer. Many years later, I returned home to Rome, Georgia as a Realtor with the family business. And then wonderfully, ...rediscovering my pottery 10 years ago...Now I'm back as a full-time potter.! It’s been fun coming full circle.
