Kim Winfrey - Owner

Kim 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 telecom 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 having the opportunity to share it with others.  Kim lives on Camano Island with her two sons, two kitties and one very loveable pup, all rescues (well, not the kids). In her 'spare' time, she likes to read, putter in the garden, travel and create her own art. Of course her favorite pastimes are pottery painting, glass fusing and crafts of all kinds!

When the boss lady is out....

SHENANIGANS.

Luna the Pottery Pup

Most everyone who meets Luna loves her; she is a very sweet and gentle girl and has lots of patience with little ones. She loves people and will come to the door to greet you, and sometimes even walk you out when you leave. She will get very excited at seeing other dogs outside because she wants so badly to play, and she will 'talk' to the hair dryer and vacuum, but she is not aggressive at all.

Luna is in the studio with Kim some days. We do understand that some folks have allergies to dogs or you may have a child that is afraid of dogs. Please let us know if this is the case. Luna has a comfy place to hang out in the back if you'd prefer a dog-free zone while you're here.

Erica Knapp 

Erica joined us in January 2017. She instructs our canvas painting classes, watercolor and helps with art enrichment and kids' camp classes. Erica has an Associates Degree in Fine Art and custom designs many of the paintings we offer. She loves helping others achieve their artistic goals while having fun at the same time! When you see Erica in the studio, you most likely will find her smiling with a paintbrush in her hand.  

When not in the studio, Erica is super-mom of three awesome little boys, super dog mom to three fluffy dogs, spending time with a loving husband and she manages to find time for making more art!
