Welcome to Art class!

I am beyond excited to create with you this year!

A little about me:

I graduated from UNC Charlotte with a BFA in Painting and a BA in Art History. My teaching background also includes 12 years of dance instruction. I have a sweet dog named Lady. In my free time, I love reading, playing guitar, going to the beach, and working as an artist. My own artwork reflects ideas about fairy tales and nightmares, this combination of strange and alluring, their similarities and how they contrast one another. I love working with mixed media, painting, drawing, collage, and printmaking. This year I challenged myself to "one drawing a day," and although I have missed quite a few days, I have found myself drawing more than I have in a very long time and that is worth celebrating.
