"I studied art my first two years in college working towards a BFA, but then changed my major. I continued my art as a hobby and after working in the business world for 40 years rekindled my passion for creating art with my hands. Pottery is my expression of that passion. Today I work at home and I am a studio artist at Clayworks. My art is both utilitarian and aesthetic, which allows me to enjoy working in different forms of ceramics. My art logo, Pots by A'Bear is a play off of my last name."
