Hello. Welcome to the art page. A little about me: I attended the University of Oregon and earned my B.A. in Fine Art, and another in Psychology a few years later.  I graduated from Portland State University with a Masters of Education in Curriculum and Instruction with a dual endorsement in Special Education and Art. I started my teaching career in Lakeview, Oregon, working with Middle School and High School students. After three years, i missed the rain, so I moved back to the Willamette Valley. I have enjoyed working here in wine country with its gorgeous rolling landscapes, perfect for painting inspiration. 

Teaching art to the youth of today, inspiring them to be creative thinkers and problem solvers, challenging them to be exceptional in their process to becoming an active and involved members of society while reaching towards their highest potential... are things that are at the core of why I teach. I look forward to working with students and their families, and working with this community in arts education.
