I have been working with with clay on and off for about 20 years.  I took my first class in Panama City, Panama as a teenager, and continued during summer vacations through high school and college at The Artist's League ceramics department in The Torpedo Factory Art Center, Old Town Alexandria, VA, where I studied with juried Art League ceramic artists.  After moving to New York, I became a studio potter at La Mano Pottery and soon after an instructor for wheel and hand building classes and private lessons.  I became studio manager and helped La Mano grow from a small quiet studio to one of the largest privately owned ceramic studios in Manhattan.

Kathy has been teaching art for over 25 years. Having taught in many private school settings and for homeschool co-ops while her children were young, Kathy has enjoyed the flexibility of teaching to the individual students while creating all of her own curriculum. 

She enjoys getting to see her students grow in their creative abilities. She is thrilled when her pre-teen students continue in the arts as they mature in their sight.  Her smallest students bring great enthusiasm and joy, her very oldest ones inspire her to keep learning new techniques.

Kathy teaches most of th eongoing weekly classes as well as special events.
