About the Artist Facilitator

I threw my first pot in 1976. Over the ensuing 43 years, I maintained a pottery hobby while attending classes and workshops in community colleges, community pottery studios and later, in my own home studio. For ten years, I taught multi-level pottery classes at a large community art center in Bucks County, PA. In 2010, after retiring from a successful sales and marketing career, I opened my own home studio and have maintained a flourishing pottery business. Since moving to the Pikes Peak region in 2017, I am teaching classes again at the Bemis School of Art.

As a US Marine Corps veteran of the Vietnam War, I am quite familiar with the customs and practices of the US military and I tend to bring those traits to my teaching.
