Meet the Artisan

Linda Gottfried

Owner, Yellow Door Studio 

Cumberland Valley Connection: Currently resides & creates here

Schooling: William Patterson Univ., College of Southern Maryland

A little about Linda: After retiring from a flourishing career in graphic design and fundraising for nonprofit organizations, Linda returned to her love of art and began taking ceramics classes. She studied under nationally-recognized ceramic artist Lindsay Pichaske. Linda has received several awards for her work, and has dedicated her efforts to creating spaces for women to pursue and share their artistic pursuits. Linda approaches her creative process like Picasso did – she goes into her studio and without expectation, begins to create.

Favorite Season: Autumn, but I love them all!
