More Art More Creativity More Experiences More Engagement More Impact

“I moved to St. Pete in 2009 and started my art career here as an artist in residence for the St. Petersburg Clay Company.  Over the course of the residency I was able to purchase the company with Adam Yungbluth and we eventually merged with the Morean Arts Center to become the Morean Center for Clay in 2014. I am currently now the Artist Programming Manager and Studio Manager for the Morean Center for Clay.  I deeply feel that I owe many of my own successes to the Morean Arts Center.  They have provided me with an enriching arts community, beautiful studios to work in and an amazing amount of opportunities that would not be available to me in any other situation.  The Morean Arts Center is a true gift to artists.”
