2012 marks Brooke’s 20th year in clay. She received her B.F.A. in ceramics from West Virginia University in 1995 and began teaching in 2002. Today, she finds balance by growing as an independent ceramic artist and sharing her passion of clay with her students.
As an instructor, she encourages her students to find their own path in clay. She supports their individual needs through troubleshooting, idea building, and demonstrations.
Brooke has exhibited her work throughout Upstate NY in galleries, festivals, and exhibitions. She currently lives in Fairport, NY with her husband Matt and their two children Zane and Will.
