    My passion for clay lies within functional pottery. I believe that pots have a nature of their own-a soul, a breath of reality, that is inherently guided by their maker. In a world that is fast paced and oriented around convenience in life rather than quality of life, hand made functional pots can slow things down, allowing the user to enjoy the important aspects of human interaction and self-introspection. Hand made pottery is a complete human expression, not an interpretation of usable objects that only address a standard. http://www.fullvictory.com/index.html  ...

Art In
The Community


River Oaks Art Center provides year-long ceramics and painting programming for developmentally disabled and elderly clients within our community. These Outreach Programs affect over 150 students annually, providing creative outlets in an external environment is the primary mission, however the true value of this particular program lies in the process, giving individuals with unique needs the opportunity for success, using art projects as a catalyst. For over five years, The Center has worked with Rapides ARC, Pecan Grove Training Centers, and Evergreen Life Services, while recently expanding our elderly education series to Matthews Memorial Health Care Facility and Naomi Heights Nursing Home. Outreach programs will expand for 2017 to included additional facilities where these art therapy sessions of creative painting, drawing and ceramic design can be implemented.
