As Linda Sickmon was beginning to think about retiring from her 30 years as a hairdresser, she realized that she would have time to explore her interest in clay. She found a community class that the Buchanan Center for the Arts was sponsoring at Monmouth College and signed up. There was no looking back. Totally consumed is what she became.
Sickmon attended the class for several years under the training of Monmouth College Professor Cheryl Meeker who was gracious enough to teach her more than the average community student, for which she is so grateful.
