I graduated in 1975 with a BA in Art from SUNY Plattsburgh, concentrating in drawing, ceramics, and photography. Shortly after graduating, I was fortunate to have my porcelain reduction crystalline work represented by The Works Gallery (NYC) and The Works Gallery East (East Hampton, NY). From 1977 to 1980, I taught ceramics in upstate New York, and in 1978 and 1979 received two NEA grants while co-founding/publishing the magazine Portfolio—a fine art photography publication. My fine art photography was exhibited and published in national shows and publications. In May of 1980 I accepted a photography position with the Federal Government in Bethesda, Maryland. Eight years later, I left the government for the corporate world. After a 30-year career in photography, graphic design, and marketing & advertising, I began working full-time as a clay artist.
I have recently served three years (2012-2015) as Co-President of Montgomery Potter’s Guild, and am currently serving as one of the Vice Presidents of Programs for the Montgomery Potter’s Guild.
