Having grown up in a small town in Mississippi, several things were very important to me, traveling and making things. Traveling affirmed that the
world was much larger than the Delta and making things allowed my hands
to understand the beauty and oddness of the world in which I lived.

Encouraging our creative spirit, my parents sent my sister and I to study art
for the summer at the Banff Center of Arts in Alberta, Canada when I was 13.
I was transformed by the experience and knew my life would always include
some form of art- making. It was my sophomore year in college at the
University of Texas at Austin that I took my first ceramics class. Graduate
school followed at University of North Texas where my major was Ceramics
and my minor, Sculpture. I graduated UNT in 1981 with a clear vision of
wanting to teach in higher education and desiring to make things in clay.

I am enjoying 30+ years of teaching and chairing an outstanding Art
Department at Brookhaven College in Dallas, TX. Clay continues to excite
me as the primary medium in my studio practice. Travel also continues to be priority choice for professional and personal growth and fun.
