Meet the All Fired Up! Team...
Bobbie and Jim Drummond
After many years working in the corporate world, Bobbie and Jim decided to make a break and go into business for themselves.
Bobbie had always wanted to open a 'paint your own pottery' studio, so they opened All Fired Up at Emory Village, Atlanta GA, adjacent to the beautiful campus of Emory University. Three years later they opened their second studio in Alpharetta GA.
I am originally from Wisconsin and have always been interested in art and painting. In 1995, I moved to Georgia where I met my best friend, Bobbie, who introduced me to pottery painting and glass fusing. I also met my wonderful husband, Daniel, and have been blessed with three beautiful children - Luca, Estella, and Fiona. My children are my greatest inspiration and share my joy of creativity. We always have fun painting, creating, and playing with art.
I enjoy painting pottery keepsakes that enable others to cherish their special memories and create family traditions. I also enjoy using old items in new ways - an antique mirror into a picture frame or an old drawer into a new shelf. In the future I would love to have my own art studio space to create, play, and be messy!
Regional Director of Operations
I graduated from Elon University with a degree in Psychology.
I have always enjoyed art as a means of expression in both myself and others. I come to work each day in the hopes of helping others relax and find a way to drop the stresses of the outside world and create something they'll be proud to display!
Manager - Alpharetta
I am a self-taught artist currently residing in Roswell, Georgia.
Having discovered a natural talent with acrylics and canvas, I pursued my interest in painting by acquiring a job with All Fired Up in 2009. I continue my work as an artist and manager of the studio, helping customers with their personal projects as well as taking on a large variety of commission work that comes my way. I see every piece as a work of Art, and love every project that I devote myself to.
Team Leader - Emory Village
I am a South Florida Girl who after too many mosquito bites, sunburns and close encounters with Alligators decided to move north. A fan of Designing Women since childhood, my dream has always been to live in the Big Peach. Now that I am here, I am studying Film and Children?s Education at Georgia State University.
I hope to help others enjoy the creative process and make memories with all the artists that enter the studio. When I'm not at the studio or at school, I am making cute crafts, awesome art or tasty treats.
Creative Classes Coordinator - Emory Village
I graduated from Georgia State with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Art Eduction, focusing on drawing, painting, and printmaking.
I have been painting for 15 years. I am excited by blank canvases, borrowed books, and when the days start to get a little longer. I am inspired by kids (and adults!) who are excited by art and are open to learning new tricks. I am passionate about teaching and am excited for a classroom of my own some day.
I'm an Accounting major at Georgia State University in my senior year. I hope to finally finish my degree within the next year and start working as a CPA and then eventually open my own bar.
I am a second year film student at Georgia State University, in hopes of one day using music and film together as a medium for my ultimate desire to help minister to and make a better world for the people that inhabit it. The fine arts have always been a passion of mine, but I sought out this job to experience visual art as opposed to my home on stage as a performer.
I am currently attending Emory University. I am minoring in Visual Arts. I have always had a passion for crafting and fine arts. I also love painting, sculpting, and jewelry making. I enjoy making art of all sorts, and I hope to help others express their creativity.
I am a student at Emory University pursuing a BA in Music with a concentration in Vocal Performance. I was born and raised in Georgia and love singing, crafting, and wasting time on Pinterest.
I was born and raised in Grove City, Ohio and just recently moved to Georgia.
When not at work you will be hard pressed to find me indoors for I am an avid hiker, hunter, fisherman, and backpacker. One of my life long goals is to hike over 1000 different trails including the Appalachian Trail and the Pacific Crest Trail. I live with my girlfriend Serena and my new beautiful puppy Emmy in Milton, Ga.
In the near future I hope to finish my bachelors degree in Environmental Sciences and pursue a career in natural resources law (a Park Ranger).
I’m one of the rare and elusive native Atlantans. I have a degree in
International Business from Georgia College
My name is Katie Bruder-Mattson and I am a twenty-two year old college student at Samford University. I am majoring in pre-med chemistry and biology and love science. I love to make art in my spare time whether it is painting watercolors or oil paintings or making jewelry. I love the outdoors and anything to do with water; swimming is my favorite sport. I am an avid animal lover and have two adorable puppies named Lucie and Bella and a hamster named Tobias.
I’m a relatively new artist to the Atlanta area after
moving to Alpharetta from my lifelong home in Southwest Missouri with my
husband Todd and our collection of furry family members. I received my
education from Missouri Southern State University in Joplin, Missouri
where I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree that focused on
Whenever I can I’m in my studio making art, producing as much as I can
to try and get ideas out of my head, and into reality. I have always
been a multi-media artist; I take one “ingredient” and add it in
addition to, or on top of another and see what happens. Literal layers
and textures are what fascinate me most. I like the limitless
possibilities that painting on sculptural elements and adding ceramics
(or whatever) on a piece can have.
Working at All Fired Up gives me the opportunity to be around creative
people and get inspiration from what they create and their
Web Development/Graphic Design - Cyberspace
I am an artist/programmer/musician from the wilds of Ontario, Canada.
After spending far too many years working in bland, beige cubicles for faceless, cold-hearted corporate giants, I decided to strike out on my own. My life-long passions for both artistic design and coding combined to establish The Secret Organization, a boutique web development and illustration studio. Fortune and fate stepped in when I met the Drummonds, forming an instant and deep friendship, and began working with them to plan big ideas for things to come.
When not busy dreaming up fun, engaging web pages and developing powerful back-end and database solutions, I enjoy harvesting maple syrup with my pet moose, Lucky.
