I've been an artist since I was a small child, using the chalk from a broken wall to draw on the slate sidewalk in front of my home...
and I've been teaching since I was a teenager, tasked with doing arts and crafts for summer kids camp.
I've had a long career filled with lots of artsy stuff, from illustrating an international children's magazine to paintings hanging in public and private spaces across the US.
These days I'm happy to guide others into being their already creative selves. I work to bring art curriculum to active senior centers, teach art in my community, and run art programs for kids. Bringing some instruction online helps me to reach YOU - it's my prayer that you can find a means of expressing yourself that makes your heart sing!
When my students ask me what my favorite medium is, I say "The one I'm working with at that moment" because I enjoy so many of them. I love to draw, paint, and create, and I love to share what I know, too. There are many ways to make art...let's have some fun with them!
