Kim Winfrey, Owner of The Pottery Nook Art Studio has been an avid arts and crafts hobbyist since a teenager. She and her two children have frequently enjoyed paint-your-own pottery activities since they were very young, teaching and cultivating a love of the arts. After an extensive career with a major telecommunications corporation, she decided to take a different direction and open her own studio. The Pottery Nook is the realization of a life-long dream to work at something she loves doing and have the opportunity to share it with others. Kim lives on Camano Island with her husband and two sons. In her spare time, she likes to read, garden, and travel with her family. And of course her favorite hobbies are painting pottery, glass fusing, canvas painting, and crafts of all kinds!!
