New York native, Potterton has been teaching psychology at SJCC for 34 years. He and his wife live in Santa Cruz where he gets much of his inspiration to paint.

As an award-winning artist, Potterton has held art shows all over New York and the Bay Area. He’s doing open studio work including a showing in Santa Cruz on Oct. 5 and 6.

He started becoming serious about being an artist in 2004.
