About this pro

We are passionate about art and creativity and want to provide a space were you feel welcome to explore your own inner artist with us.

We are excited about helping our local community grow; combining our love of art with our mission to provide a community space to help our community members develop, heal, and create through art.

I believe we all have the ability to create art and just need the right place and experience to find our creative side. I like encouraging and guiding others to try something new to create something they never thought possible. 

I have been a hobby artist for 3 years and have 7+ years of experience with teaching different art mediums including pottery, alcohol painting and abstract acrylic painting.

    I had an absolutely WONDERFUL experience at this Studio! Matt taught us a lot of different techniques during the class, and he even have us tips for doing it again at home! It was a totally relaxed time, but I still feel like it was an awesome opportunity - one I can't wait to have again! With all of the pottery and paintings displayed around their studio, it's hard not to get excited for the next time you can go back!

    I LOVE this studio. They are so talented, friendly and sooo helpful. Amii teaches acrylic classes. She has helped me to learn a whole new medium and actually be proud of my work. Not to mention the class is so fun!

I made a big vase and before even pulling it off of the wheel, one of my students said she simple must have it for her office!  Very rewarding to know my art is valued. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Be open to everything that is said, because there is more than one way to do almost everything in pottery.  Leanr what works for you but be open to learning new ways also, it might just make things easier someday.   


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Do you need/want decorative pottery or functional food safe pottery?  There are different requirements.
