Degrees and Certifications:
Hi West Middle School and fellow artists!
I recently moved to Colorado with my husband and toddler to be closer to family. This is going to be my 12th year teaching art. I've taught mostly middle school art and high school art and graphic art and worked as a graphic designer prior to teaching. I consider myself both an educator and a maker. I have an appreciation for all things creative. My never-ending desire to keep learning has shaped me into an artist, designer, jewelry maker, amateur photographer, and the list continues.
I'm curious and love a good challenge and I think grit and a little bit of stubbornness is a key to success. The belief that inspiration can be found in every nook and cranny keeps me searching for more. I find life on the road and spending time outdoors the best prescription for just about any ailment and delight in finding a dusty old treasure that I can add to my collections.
Here is my online portfolio website if you'd like see more of my work and former students' artworks!
