My kindergarten teacher told my Mom, "She is an artist." That simple statement was the catalyst that set me on a pathtoward becoming a visual art teacher. Now, after more than 20 years in the art room I have influenced numerous designers, engineers, business-people--toward valuing the creative. At the local deli, my former student thanks me each time he sees me for encouraging him to pursue his creative passion, which is music. It brings me joy to help people realize and fulfill their creative potential. Find Your ART!
