I have been a pastel artist for the last sixteen years, and graduated from Michigan State University where I studied textiles and art. I work and teach drawing and pastel classes from my studio in Concord at Clearwater Artist Studios and also work part-time as a tech support agent for Fine Art Studio Online, an artist website provider.
I am affiliated with the Campagna Artist Society in Concord, the Cabarrus Art Guild, Kannapolis Arts, and the Piedmont Pastel Society in Charlotte.
My husband and I moved to this area about three years ago from Austin Texas. We love the hills, the moderate weather, the skies and trees, and the proximity of the mountains and the coast. And that art is supported here in such an amazing way! Michael Knox has done an incredible job of promoting art in Kannapolis and we’re very grateful for all of his work!
