Artist Bio, Shelly Houghtaling

I have been blind since birth. I attended public school in my home town of Richmond Michigan. After graduation I went to Oakland University, where I earned my Bachelor's degree. From Oakland I attended Western Michigan University where I received a Master's degree in Blind Rehabilitation Teaching. I worked several years in this field. It was while working that I met my husband, who is also blind. We have been married several years.

I have always had an interest in pottery, and after searching I finally found a great class the Clio Center for the Arts. I have been taking classes for 4 years and enjoy it so much! It is good therapy for me and gets me out of the house. I love doing pottery to show sighted people the capabilities of the blind and visually impaired. Each piece of pottery is stamped in Braille with my initials. "S.H."

The first day and the reception for this show is October 3rd from 6 to 8 PM. The show will run daily through October 18th.
