TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I've developed visual art curriculum and taught drawing and painting classes since 1980. During this time, I also hired and trained art educators and designed core curriculum for community-based children’s art programs. In 1998, I began writing drawing lessons for my first website. In 2002, I retired from my twenty-five-year career as an internationally-certified forensic artist to expand my writing career into authoring educational drawing books. In 2005, my current website was launched.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is lighthearted and casual. By making the learning process enjoyable, students love coming to class. I also show them my own artworks in progress so they better understand the techniques and skills they are trying to master.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Between 1989 and 1991, my paintings and drawings were honored with numerous awards in provincial, regional, and international art exhibitions and competitions. As a forensic artist, I received three commendations from RCMP and municipal police departments. In 1994, I was awarded the Forensic Artists International Certificate of Membership.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I'm self-educated. Back in the day of the dinosaur (grin) traditional education methodology was unable to accommodate my learning challenges: I'm "on the spectrum" and have visual challenges.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

My partner and I live in the suburbs of Halifax, Nova Scotia. Our blended family includes five adult children and two grandchildren.
