I'm a Teaching Artist from a family of teachers and women who loved sewing, quilting, dyeing cloth, rug twining, embroidery and crochet. I grew up in a multi-generational home where handmade was a way of life. I earned a BFA degree at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in Studio Art with concentrations in Ceramic Sculpture and Painting. I have additional educational experiences at East Carolina University in Ceramics, Painting, Art Education and Textiles and graduate work at Western Carolina University and Penland School of Crafts.
My teaching experiences include K-12, community college and university. I received a 2017 Certificate of Completion for The Natural Dye Studio from Penland School of Crafts. The two-week class was taught by Charllotte and Sophena Kwon, renowned worldwide for reconnecting indigenous cultures with natural dyeing. They also own Maiwa, a leading source of natural dyestuffs.
