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!

Seeded and Watered

Layered paint background, fabric flower, stitched border.

Adding color to the face, and was finally able to use my pencil lengthener which I have had forever~

The Quin Magenta on the dress ended up looking cool with the background colors showing through~

Strathmore Journaling Workshop: Sounds I LOVE

March 1st begins my new workshop.  Our pre-workshop homework is to list all the sounds we love.  Here are mine:

My grandson's laughter, thunder and rain, waves crashing on a beach, a harmony of voices, guitars that sing, a nostalgic song, my children singing when they don't know I can hear them, the words, I love you, the first birds of spring, the winds working their way across our multitude of trees, no sounds after a day of non-stop noise

Art Studio Makeover or Under...

Time to organize and see what I actually have! Books to alter, books for ephemera, books to read, books just because I like the covers!
