Visual Artist and Instructor
When I am inspired by something I experience in life, my first instinct is to paint it. I work large and small, from big murals to small watercolors and canvas. I am not a full time artist, instead I've been painting whenever I can for enjoyment as a hobby, for family members, and for commission work.
I enjoy teaching art techniques to others. My classes include a variety of paints, methods, and materials. Teaching has been very motivating and inspiring for me as an artist, because I have seen so many students gain confidence and joy from expressing themselves. Teaching has kept me creating fresh work in new ways for student and personal use.
