About Valerie

I was interested in drawing and painting ever since elementary school. My first art teacher had us third graders to life drawing (clothed, of course). In high school, though at the top of my class academically, I felt the most meaningful experiences I had were in the art room. I went on to earn my bachelor's degree and teaching certificate from the University of Michigan, (School of Architecture and Design, and School of Education), in 1970 (BFA). My major was Ceramics, though I had almost the same credits in drawing. The source of my inspiration is the beauty I see in nature. After my masters degree I have been active as a potter and a teacher. I love to teach anyone older than 15 years old and older adults. I love to share art experiences with students, see what their interests are, and help them to express themselves in lots of different media, not just pottery.
