About Me

On a pottery quest in Red Lodge, Montana, 2019.

I was a teacher and professor for 49 years, in schools and at the universities of Georgia, Nebraska, Minnesota, and Louisiana (LSU). While I loved my career, especially the students I taught and mentored, I always had an artist trapped inside. About 10 years ago, I started setting up a ceramics studio in my carport to give her a place to play. I’ve been throwing pots and making figures of goddesses and angels ever since.

As a child, I never liked selling Girl Scout cookies, and I still don’t like selling things, but I must find homes for some of my work or I won’t have room in my home for my people and our sweet English Cocker Spaniel! A few things are for sale via LillyPotter’s Shop but people generally contact me directly once they’ve seen something here that they like.

I really like donating my work to silent auctions for charities. Contact me if you want me to design something for you.
