Heather Kranz found both her love of creating art and this area while she pursued her B.A. of Science in Studio Art at Skidmore College. There, she developed skills in Ceramics, Painting, and Printmaking. She completed her M.A. in Art Education from Columbia University and has been teaching at Fox Lane Middle High School in Bedford, NY ever since. In 1999 she returned to Skidmore for a summer to work on ceramic sculpture where she met her husband, a ceramicist and educator who grew up in the area. Since that time, they have spent every free moment in Bolton Landing, NY, compelled buy the beauty of Lake George and the warmth of the people.
