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!

Warhol and Lichtenstein

Curiouser and Curiouser...After downloading pics I took from my trip to MOMA in NYC, I saw that Warhol's famous "Soup Can" print is reflected in this Lichtenstein print.

Hot Pink, More Art Journal Play

This art journal page received its roots from the online classes I took from Suzi Blu, Suzi is a down-home Jersey girl, that makes you smile every time you see her.  She is so real, that it makes you not only WANT to take a class from her, but also want to be her friend! Take a class from her, you will not only learn a LOT, you will also feel connected to her (which is a difficult thing to achieve online).  She is on Facebook, so Friend her and don't forget to LIKE the You Suck Monday on Facebook, a LIVE stream of techniques (its also recorded)!

Pan Pastel Play

This is Kaila! She is my little Yorkie mix who is a lover, but very mischievious! I sketched this from this photo:

She is showing off her new collar from the Etsy store, Pinky's Pet Gear.
(Just went there to get the link, now I have to go back and order a spring collar!)

I used my new purchase of pan pastels which I had never used before.  I loved how they blended so easily.
