Hello, it is a pleasure to introduce myself to you. I am a virtual and middle school Art teacher for the past 23 years. Art is a part of my daily life. I really enjoy art galleries and submitting my own work to art shows. I am an active painter with a regional group of artists. We have done some online art shows and physical shows. I am married and have three daughters along with our dog Phoebe. One of my passions is being outdoors and birding. Yes birding, getting outside and identifying and watching all species of birds. I would also say I love a great joke and magic is super cool as well. I want you to know I will work hard to make your ART experience with me phenomenal. Art is truly about being creative and a problem solver. You grow so much from learning so many wonderful ways to express yourself in ART as well as appreciate what artists have created.
