Every turn in the road in Washington County reveals another breathtakingly beautiful scene. Living on the Battenkill, I see a whole world floating by every day. I watch the birds doing their mating dances in the spring, watch the babies following their parents down the river and often flying away for the winter. Year-round, I watch the eagles hunting on the river, the crows having discussions on the lawn and hear the owls hooting. These have been a major inspiration on my work.
I have always had a need to create. My first career lasting over 20 years was as a knitwear designer. Soon after retiring from that career I started my sojourn into ceramics. I have had great teachers and mentors. In NYC I am part of the community at Greenwich House Pottery. When I bought my house in Shushan 10 years ago, the first construction was to create a studio. As I work, I look out from my studio at a beautiful red barn, the ever-changing Battenkill and hear the many birds stopping by with a friendly tweet.
