Mr. Adam Sterrett

I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and spent most of my life there until moving to Birmingham, Alabama in May of 2007. Upon arrival, I sought out ceramic studios that would enable myself to continue as a practicing artist. In August 2007 I attained a visual art  position at an accredited school for Tuscaloosa City Schools. In 2010, my teaching career has lead me to Trussville City Schools where I currently teach all visual art levels.
Other personal interest include personal training, adventure sports, and travel.
