This is photo from my time at Arrowmont as a studio assistant. That year, late 2013- 2014, I worked there at Arrowmont and then went to host at JCC Folk School. I am just starting to realize the impact those experiences had on my artwork. I was exposed to so many different kinds of artwork and met so many great people.
This photo brought back good memories when I found it and I thought it would be a good place to start this blog. This photo shows me in the place I feel most comfortable, the craft school studio.
Craft schools are special places, and my favorite places. I love my own studio but I love the community studios even more. It's great to have engaged and enthusiastic people working alongside each other. I have always wanted a career at a craft school. It is the desire I followed to an Art Education and Sculpture degree.
I am so grateful for my time in that clay studio, all the studios I had a moment in that year, before, and since.
