My work in clay began as a functional potter at the Greenville (SC) Museum of Art in 1994. Since that time, I have had the opportunity to study with amazing ceramic artists who have included: 

Richard Burkett
Beth Cavener Stichter
Susan Filley
Debra Fritts
Eva Kwong
Leah Leitson
Nick Joerling
Jeff Oestreich
Sandi Pierantozzi
Pete Pinnell 
Ellen Shankin
Tom Spleth
Lana Wilson

The Armory Art Center (West Palm Beach, FL) was instrumental in my growth as an artist where I studied large sculpture with Maritza Cornejo Bean and Chris Riccardo, drawing and painting with Dennis Aufiery, and glazing techniques with Helen Otterson. I have also been a student at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts (Gatlinburg, TN), Anderson Ranch (Snowmass, CO), Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts (Asheville, NC), Penland School of Crafts (Bakersfield, NC), and La Meridiana International School of Ceramics (Tuscany, Italy).
