I am a long time student turned instructor here at SBMA. I was introduced to pottery making in my high school art class and it was many years until I picked it back up as an adult. In January 2009 I took my first class at South Bend Museum of Art and have been here since. I have learned from many talented instructors over the years at the museum and have been excited to pass the knowledge and skill along for about a year now. I like throwing on the wheel and being a very practical person, my focus is primarily on functional pottery.
