First Experience With Clay:  Bought some clay to play with my granddaughter when she was visiting. I got addicted right away. I started by buying a bunch of books used online to get me started. There are so many good books with so much information I overwhelmed with information. I just got so consumed with all the different things that can be done with clay. It is hard to focus on doing just one thing.
Past Teaching Experiences:  In high school I won a contest with a sculpture I made of a horse. I taught English Riding at 2 Universities in Mpls. I taught sales while working for the airlines. I did a lot of volunteering at my son's school. Our group of artists from that school made floats for the Christmas parade. We won the contest for best in Parade for 4 years running. That was one of best efforts in my artistic learning.

Class Listings & Descriptions:  I have only tried to teach beginning claying. However I have encouraged my students to go in their directions. I have a set beginner class, but after that I want my students to grow artisticly. I share many of my books that I have collected to inspire them.

Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"Alway start with what you know. There are people out there that just need a little push to get started. That's at the basic beginning. If you can inspire someone then you can teach."
