Dusty had an adventure-filled life before embarking on her exploration of the arts. As a military wife for almost thirty years, she followed her husband, Ted, around the world raising 5 children. A firm believer in building teams, she enjoys being a part of the co-op Clay N Colors. As a potter,she loves the tactile experience, creating shapes, and the surprise of opening up the kiln after a glaze firing! Most of all, because of her husband's generosity, she is thankful to be able to donate the funds that are generated from her sales at Serranos Coffee Shop to charity. This newfound passion has opened her mind to explore other media in art.
