2019 Featured Artist
Sheila Watson Coutin - Sandbrook Pottery
This year’s featured artist is Sheila Watson Coutin, a well-known ceramist from Stockton, New Jersey. Her work has been exhibited at numerous venues across the Bucks County and Hunterdon County areas and beyond, as well as in nearly every Art in the Garden. Sheila has worked in many media, including photography, painting, fiber arts, and woodworking.
“All my life I have made things. As a young child, I wrote and illustrated stories, I sewed and knitted most of my clothes as a teenager and young adult, and I taught myself tatting, macramé, needlepoint, and crochet. Although I have had no formal training in art, I have studied photography, painting, woodworking in workshops, adult education courses and community college, but not until I discovered clay did I become passionate about a particular medium. Through clay I can express my love of nature, my garden and the creatures that inhabit it, and boats and the ocean, which have been a huge part of my life. Getting my hands dirty playing with clay remains a joy and a blessing.”
