I am a proud Teaching Artist!
I've been creating art my entire life and I love helping others get involved in the creative process. I have first hand proof of the benefits of art making. (see Group Programs)
When I was a little girl, I gave my creations to friends and family for any occasion! And I still do. Visual expression is a way for me to share myself with others.
Somewhere along my twisting path, I became fascinated with textiles and their production. I worked in the Textile & Interior Design fields for about ten years. My artwork is often influenced by fabrics, and nature. I love to draw and paint but also find excitement in exploring different art forms, quilling for one.
As a teaching artist, I'm always exploring with my students. I love the creative exchange. Art making is sometimes the best avenue to genuine communication. Helping people get comfortable with their visual expression is one of the most rewarding aspects of being a teaching artist.
I accept individual and commercial commissions in various art forms and always welcome clients' input to ensure collaborative, custom pieces. I strive to get people involved in the process of art making to promote Social Creativity and the benefits of self-expression through visual art.
