 I have been teaching art in an Elementary School for 25+ years and here at my studio for 13+ years. I was honored to be Teacher of the Year in 2002 & 2004 and Art Educator of the Year in 2002. It is my responsibility and passion to awaken in children an interest in art.

The arts give us a language that helps us to see the connections in our world. I will provide a variety of art experiences with appropriate and challenging materials in order for the kids to create art that is meaningful to them.

I look forward to making a creative difference in your child's life
