I have been teaching art for 18 years, 16 at Eustace Middle School. I graduated from the University of West Florida and Pensacola Junior College in Pensacola Florida where I lived for 12 years. I grew up in Arlington Texas and went to Lamar High School. After graduation, I served in the United States Marine Corps. I love animals, my favorite has always been horses. I raise Californian show rabbits for my children to show in livestock shows. I love sharing my love of art with my students. I am always trying to find fun ways to inspire their creativity. Arstonia gives me so many new ways to challenge my students. My hope is that they will have a deeper appreciation for the world around them by learning to look with their inner artistic eye.
