In 1971 I moved to the Charleston area with my parents and started my high school years. After attending the Medical University of South Carolina I received my degree as an Ophthalmic Technician and have had a long career working with my husband Dr. Tom Mather at Carolina Eyelid.
During a trip to Santa Fe, New Mexico I was inspired to come home and start classes for ceramic art. In 2010, I attended classes at cone 10 studios under teachers Anne John, Fiorenzo Berardozzi and Holly Benton. After 2 years, cone 10 studios asked me to join their diverse and talented group of clay artists.
This year I have had the honor of being juried into several shows. I received an Honorable Mention Award and two of my pieces were selected for traveling with a South Carolina exhibition over the next year.
My work takes inspiration from the natural beauty around us, resulting in unique and organic movement and depth.
