I’ve had a camera in my hands or been working in clay off and on for most of my life. My maternal grandmother first introduced me to art by way of her slip casting hobby. When I took a pottery class in 1990 at a Junior College to reduce the stress of a horrific job situation, I found porcelain and was hooked on clay as my primary medium. I’ve traveled around the world, studied with various masters and thoroughly enjoy the medium of clay. I hope you will too. My grad school teacher, Dan Hammett, always stressed that he only knows so much, and that we should spend our summers soaking up as much information from others as possible. I once stood mesmerized in front of a display of Rudolph Staffel’s translucent porcelain works at the Texas Clay II Festival where I first met Randy Brodnax. Years later, after moving back home, I had the pleasure to bring many of the world’s finest clay artists here to Fayetteville and soak up their mastery! My favorite is a great teacher and entertainer, Randy Brodnax. He will regale you with his life stories, and I learned from him how to work larger. My sinks thrown from a 25# piece of clay are a testament to his influence. My pottery studio is an old metal barn on our small farm. I love the times of the year when I can open the slider door and embrace all of nature from the trees and rocks, to the roaming chickens, and the neighbor’s cows. It’s an amazing place to create and when you purchase, I get to create more. Thank you for looking, spreading the news of my work and purchasing… Have a wonderful day! 🙂

Why coach with Kelley
Kelley is great at listening, mirroring, caring when it is hard /compassion. She is a synthesizer and she uses her own experiences and skills to help solve problems. She uses her creativity and love of life to help frame different paradigms. She is sensitive and yet analytical and has a spacial creativity. Kelley could teach ANY one creativity, how to follow muse and how to be comfortable in who you are.
My biggest hesitation when deciding whether or not to work with Kelley, was my lack of money, honestly. That was, at the time, my biggest struggle, and I was having a hard time justifying spending what I didn't really have, but something had to give. Since working with Kelley, she helped me to realize how much I was actually pushing money away because of my subconscious beliefs. She helped me to change my view of money, so I am now open to receiving it! What I loved most about my work with Kelley is the fun and loving reception I always knew I would get from her. I have money coming in, more potential outlets to put myself out there, and better yet more potential customers to attract, and this is all that I could have hoped for and more!!
I had no hesitation working with Kelley after just briefly speaking with her. Her wisdom, warmth & kindness comes right through the telephone lines. A big challenge for me before working with Kelley was feeling quite frustrated about my creativity. That coupled with a persistent medical issue, had me feeling stuck. Kelley asked me some great questions that opened the doors. With her help I dug deep and found an old limiting belief that got cleared out with surprising ease once I named it. This led to a quick shift in my perspective. Much to my delight my creativity opened up and started to flow. I felt better right off and starting tapping into my creative juices, enjoying the upliftment. This helped me to stop worrying about the physical challenges so much, relax a bit, and inadvertently get well. I'd highly recommend working with Kelley if you are serious about changing how your life is unfolding
A lot of people in Kelley’s sphere lean on her for stability, support and often get a basic life coaching lesson out of the interaction. A lot of them just need a calm uninvolved perspective to realize they can deal with their own issues. People gravitate towards Kelley to improve their feeling/being in some positive way. Kelley’s able to inspire others to do things on their own or become part of the creative process
