I am the founder of Florida Porcelain Artists, proud member of International Porcelain Artists (IPAT) and organizer for the Florida Ceramic Show. Previously served as the President of the Central Florida Ceramic Guild; 2nd VP for Central Brevard Artists Association (CBAA), and Former President of Brevard Porcelain Artist Club. December Guest Artist at the King Center for the past 8 years. I have been an active member of the Art Gallery of Viera since October 2019 and promoter and Organizer of the annual Florida Fall Ceramic Show.
Loving to work with my hands, I took an interest in ceramics over 50 years ago. Working with a kiln fascinated me. This fascination led me to explore other avenues of fire-able art. During this time, my ceramic education was being developed through teacher certifications Mayco, Duncan, Gare, Dona, Bell Ceramics, Seeley’s and Fashion Hues. My interest in fired arts led me to porcelain doll making. Eventually I became a Grand Master Porcelain Doll Artist in both antique and modern dolls, having studied under the Master’s of porcelain doll artists. My passion is decorative china painting and glass fusing. In the past two decades I have studied with many “masters” of fine porcelain art painting. I still host at least one international Porcelain Art teacher in my home studio every year.
