Dudley Smith - Artist
I have been creating art as long as I can remember. Creating art has always been a challenge but even more so now that I have been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. Overcoming challenges has now become the norm instead of the exception. I have decided to focus on traditional pottery and sculpture as I really enjoy working with clay. I also enjoy painting, so I am going to include some of my paintings and other related work on this site.
I received my Undergraduate and Masters Degree in art from Western Carolina University. I also attended a summer session at Penland School of Craft. I have been fortunate to have my art exhibited in shows in several states and won multiple awards. I have worked in art education 20 years. I am privileged to have a wonderful wife and son and have been married for over 30 years. I have several pets including a puppy. Her name is Chloe. I hope you enjoy my art and keep visiting Neanderthal Pottery to see what's new.
