Academic Background

BA, Williams College

Ben Potter grew up in Sewanee TN, and both of his parents are teachers. He attended Williams College, where he double-majored in Fine Art and Biology. He also spent substantial time on the whitewater rivers of the Northeast.

After an internship with the New York Zoological Society on St. Catherine’s Island in Georgia, he decided to pursue a degree in art at the California College of the Arts in Oakland CA. After this MFA, he taught college courses in Vermont and Wisconsin before landing at Unity.

He lives in Belfast with his wife and three children, and can see the ocean in the wintertime from his house.
