I’ve always been drawn to clay. From summer classes as a kid at local Community Centers, through high School, and finally majoring in Art at College of the Redwoods in Northern California.
I’ve been making functional and art pottery for over 30 years. For 10 years, I demonstrated pottery at the Walt Disney World Village. And for the past 20 plus years have been displaying and selling my pottery at art festivals throughout the United States.
I grew up in a beach town in Southern California very much like New Smyrna Beach. I have always enjoyed making art in different mediums, from painting and photography to sculpture and pottery.
I earned an AA degree in Art from College of the Redwoods in Northern California and a BA in Art with an emphasis in Photography from The University of Central Florida.
I worked briefly demonstrating pottery at the Walt Disney World Village with my husband, Bill Colby. I currently exhibit and sell my pottery at Art Festivals and in multiple galleries throughout the United States including “The Hub on Canal” in New Smyrna Beach, Florida.
