How have you have taken your experience as a well-established maker in the field and passed that knowledge along to other artists?
"I haven’t done as much of that as I would like. I love my home studio, but a downside is that I don’t interact with as many fellow artists as I would in a public studio. I did quite a lot of that at the Silos and it’s one of the few things I miss about being there. I love talking to all kinds of people when I have an exhibition, both artists and non-artists. The Bayou City Clay Crawl has also been a great venue for meeting many fellow artists and people interested in getting into art."
