I have degrees in both Art Education and Graphic Design. I have been teaching part-time in this school system since 1998. I love working with students and seeing that fulfillment and sense of pride that they have when they create something that comes from within themselves. I also work as a freelance artist when I am not teaching and also do a variety of commissioned art. The students are motivated by the work they see me doing and are proud to be taught by a "real artist."
