Imagine . Create . Connect
In the spring of 2017, I found this perfectly empty storefront in downtown Troy, and thanks to the help of family and friends, Studio 14 Creative Arts Center was born. We began as a sip and paint venue, with the heartbeat of our mission to bring art to everyone.
In September of 2019, we added Paint Your Own Pottery. My husband and I loved taking our children to pottery studios when they were little, and what better way to create lasting memories than with clay? Today, we offer a large selection of items to choose from, and strive to create a fun and creative experience for your family.

Studio 14 Creative Arts Center can only be the great place that it is by being run by wonderful people.
Owner/ Instructor/ Artist
The Arts run deep in my family. My grandfather and uncle were accomplished musicians, and my father shared with me his knack of “If I see it, I can make it.” From a very young age, I found happiness in creating with my hands.
Art is for EVERYONE. It’s just a matter of breaking down the parts into teachable pieces, and we take great pride in helping even those who don’t feel artistically inclined to create their own amazing works. I hope you’ll find Studio 14 to be a fun and social art experience, and most of all, I want you to LOVE your art!
Currently, I enjoy doing acrylic dot paintings and fluid pours. In the past I have done watercolor, fiber, photography, clay mediums. I obtained my degree in Art Education from The Ohio State University and a Masters degree in Art Therapy from Wright State University. I have taught art in the public schools grades K-8. I love to see a students face light up when they learn a new technique or finish their art work.
Art surrounds us every minute of every day. You can’t escape it. A creative person designed your phone, your couch, your car, your house, etc. Art is the most valuable part of our society and I love the feeling that I have while I’m free to create whatever I want
