Art has always been a central part of my life and identity, and of all the many art forms, I am most passionate about ceramic art. I have been working with clay since I was eight years old, and it continues to be the most alluring, fun, and challenging art form I have ever experienced. For me, ceramics is not simply a hobby; it is a passion I plan to carry with me into my adult life. I am currently pursuing a minor in visual art at Harvard College and plan to work towards an MFA after college. I am so excited to share my love of clay with SCS and the Shelburne community!
I teach chemistry full-time at UVM but art has always been a huge part of my life. Finally, after years of watching my daughter enjoy the classes and camps at the Shelburne Craft School, I decided to take a clay class.

I live in Hinesburg with my husband and cat. I work on projects that address climate change. I love to do art because it’s relaxing. I need to learn some of the basics of watercolor so looking forward to the watercolor class!
AnnMarie is a mostly self-taught crafter who has worked in many media. A children’s book editor and writer, she moved to Vermont from Brooklyn in 2021. For many years, she sewed and sold sock monkeys for a small NYC-based nonprofit that organized fine art and craft exhibitions and workshops for underserved artists, including seniors, those in recovery, and the unhoused. She also once organized a community art project for kids that involved weaving on old CDs with recycled yarn.
These days she experiments with needle and wet felting, knits, and weaves a bit. She is excited to join the fiber community at the Craft School, where she aims to learn as much as share her skills. She lives in Shelburne with her two kids, one husband, and a very old cat.
