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!

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.
