With my husband, potter/ sculptor Jamie Davis, I live and work near Six Mile, SC. For 30 years we have made our living as full-time artists. We have tended our constantly changing house, studios, and gardens, leaving the state and the country on frequent trips to sell, to teach, or to re-inspire ourselves, and returning gladly. This wooded setting in the beautiful foothills of the upstate now includes miles of trails and an 80 foot multiple waterfall, and fully-equipped fiber, clay, wood and sculpture facilities.

Lately it also includes some young artists, who share our expanding studios and have brought new vigor to the place. Our son Shelby, an MFA student, returns occasionally from Oregon but his sculptural self-portraits still inhabit the grounds. My daughter Amalia is a PhD candidate in Art History whose perspective keeps us alert.
With our friends Donna Polseno and Rick Hensley, we have recently taken a leap of imagination, investing in a small house in a beautiful village in Liguria, in the hills of northern Italy. We plan to visit, work, and possibly teach there. It is currently in renovation. Stay tuned.
