I am a professional artist and educator. I have been a commissioned artist creating watercolor portraits and landscapes. I have been an artist for a scrapbook company. I have been a Visual Art Specialist for nine years for various government/military schools, currently in Germany. Most importantly I am a wife and a mom, which is where I get the most inspiration artistically.
I am a combination of old school and modern methods. I have a drive to teach students about the masters of art as well as current creative minds. I teach kids to really draw as well as be creative in their thinking. I am all about exposing kids to the world of art. I use paint, crayon, clay, ink, printmaking, collage, sculpture, batik, and a touch of glitter in my curriculum. I love teaching art to kids. I enjoy seeing their personality and stories come to life in their artwork.
Bachelor of Art focusing on Visual Arts Masters of Education and Teaching Certification Gifted Education Certification
My artwork is all over the world. I have created and participated in several gallery shows, even to having a personal show of my paintings. I have needed another outlet for my ideas and I enjoy being a part of TPT and helping to make your products and projects more visually exciting. I also do commission clip art for YOUR needs, message me for a pricelist.
