I have taught art for almost 50 years in many venues. Also I am a professional artist with a long resume of exhibits and collectors - nationally and locally. My degrees are Bachelor of Fine Arts in design, and Master of Fine Arts in drawing, painting, printmaking.
Totally hands-on, filled with opportunities for students' own creative imput. Legends and poetry world culturally-based fuels inspiration for the students' art work. I create a very safe environment in the classroom so the students can create!
