Michele has 10 years experience hand-building and throwing pots on the wheel. Having little formal training in the arts she is an outsider artist with a real appreciation for color and form.
She exhibited at Baxter’s Art Gallery in New Bern in the Teapot Show. Additionally she has participated in the yearly New Bern Pottery Festival and also maintains a permanent exhibit at her shared studio and gallery with City Potters 901A Pollock St New Bern where her work will be displayed.
Michele finds pottery challenging and therapeutic to counterbalance her full-time job as a Medical Sonographer. She enjoys using objects found in nature such as leaves, seashells, sea creatures and even a dried lizard or insect to add texture and interest to her work.
