As a Social Worker turned Ceramic Artist, this shift provided the ability to develop my aesthetic while I grew into my dream job of creating and teaching ceramics full time. Each form of clay demands nurturing and process which I find soothing. My company is named Brave Ceramics to honor the courage and willingness to fail while learning, which helps me practice bravery in other areas of life. As I started building my business through community art tours and pop-up markets in 2016, I learned there was a large interest for people wanting to work with ceramics. I’ve spent the last 6 years teaching beginner and intermediate pottery classes across Austin, Houston, and surrounding cities. In 2022, I had the opportunity to teach over 450 students. My goal is for students to leave class with a renewed connection to their artistic expression and confidence in their creative abilities, so they too can practice that bravery in their daily lives.


Thank you for 32 years of support of the Texas Clay Festival.
