As an artist who likes to get her hands dirty, Sarah uses a variety of processes to make her work. She uses everything – to include alternative photographic processes, printmaking, and mixed media.

Jacqueline Hobbs

Hello! My name is Jacqueline Hobbs. I was born and raised right here in Greenville, North Carolina, and am currently studying Art at East Carolina University where I plan to graduate with a BFA in Art Education. I began taking art classes at a very young age and have never stopped. While I have dabbled in several different art forms and medias over the years I find the most joy in ceramics. I've been hand building for about 12 years now and have been on the wheel for about nine. While I love anything I can get messy with, nothing has captured my heart like ceramics has and honestly I'm not sure anything will!
