Robert studied music and was a performer and teacher of music and theatre across the states for over 20 years. Creativity and the process have always been a passion. While living in Singapore for seven years Robert began meeting ceramicists and collecting pottery from around the region. Upon returning to Texas he took his first class in the art of throwing pottery at the Creative Arts Center (CAC) of Dallas under the direction of Nathan Portnoy and Ryan Vaughn. He has continued his education at the CAC along with workshops to hone specific skills. Robert was selected from over 100 submissions to be featured in a juried exhibition at the Mary Tomas Gallery in Dallas. He has received first, second and third place ribbons from the State Fair of Texas. He continues to perform and teach voice while creating new pottery every week.
