About Me

My photo
My teaching career began 17 years ago when I decided I would finally become "What I wanted to be when I was grown-up", a teacher.  At that time I had worked for 15 years in the banking and financial industry and was even a stockbroker at one time. I returned to college and graduated with a Masters of Elementary Education from Wilmington University. I became certified to teach art and currently I teach grades PK-8.  Art is my passion and I love what I do!

Envy and Contentment

Two sisters dreaming of their futures...each will end up envying the other. Created with Adobe in layers then colorized with acrylics. Image printed onto inkjet transparencies.

Wrath and Peace

Does she really decide who I will be? This was a commentary on whether we become our mothers.

Using the same main image of the young girl (the daughter), it was scanned and then in Adobe, the
background was "erased" out. Two copies were done on ink jet transparency. The first mother image was scanned and the tiled in Adobe. It was also copied onto a transparency. Offsetting the two transparencies gave the daughter quite a menacing appearance.

The peaceful mother was done in the same way.

Greed and Generosity

Greed and Generosity...vintage image was scanned and then copied onto a heavy vellum paper. It was then punched with a circle punch. The greed image was swirled in a vortex pattern using Adobe. The circles were attached with mini brads.
