About the Instructor: Nell Fredericksen took time off between a MS in Zoology and beginning a PhD program and took classes in pottery, stained glass and metalsmithing. When her PhD funding fell through, she turned to the arts and as a result has been a professional artist and fine art jeweler for over 20 years. She has never lost the fascination and wonder she feels in connection with nature and has continued work as a wildlife biologist through the years. After spending 6 years in Bolivia, Nell and her husband (and then baby boy) moved to Ferrum, where she has reestablished her studio and art career.
