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!

Spring Beauty

The air is cool with the sweet breeze as the sun shines to make it the most beautiful day.

Stained Glass

This piece was done during one of our Second Saturday Art group gatherings. Created out of an image I doodle frequently, I enjoyed playing with the variety of glass pieces to give her depth.

Catchin' Up/ Rock and Roll

Since I was scanning already, I decided to add some pics of past pieces I had done. This first one was for the Rock and Roll Exhibit at the Dover Art League.

Ignorant Indifferance and Honest Heart

This is the Free Choice round for the Vices and Virtues Round Robin. After thinking about lots of things going on around me, I came up with the this theme. I hadn't used any encaustics for a while, so I played around with them and enjoyed the process.

Pride and Humility

Inspired by my son's first dance, I created this piece for the Vice and Virtues Pride and Humility theme. Created with watercolors, one side of the spread portrays Bryan as a baby in my arms and the second is him today as I was teaching him how to dance.

Temperance and Gluttony

This theme was much more difficult for me to create. I wanted to do something different and finally became inspired. It seems that both gluttony and temperance are rooted in money, hence the torn dollar bill representing the roots.

Digital Deck

This is one of the After pics from the Digital Deck. The final one had a couple of more tweaks to it.

Liberte Postage Stamp/Digital Deck BEFORE

Liberte has been born. I have been invited into the Recollection Parlor. This artistic group will be creating a country from their own inner minds. This was the first project. This also became the BEFORE piece for the Digital Deck hosted by Red Scott of Travelers Hart.
