My educational credentials include a Bachelor of Arts degree from Indiana University with a major in Fine Arts and a minor in Art History; a Masters degree in painting from Pratt Institute; and many workshops with master studio potters. After my second daughter, Elizabeth, was born, I left a seventeen year career as a secondary school art teacher in order to focus on motherhood and Midrash Pottery. The kids and the pottery have developed beautifully, and all the while I keep thinking that the fun is just beginning!
