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!

La Nouba Cirque Du Soleil Collage

La Nouba Collage

La Nouba Double Page Spread

Inspired by Donna Downey's Collage Monday, I spent the afternoon creating this journal page from our first Cirque show experience last week.

Extra Paint Backgrounds

After completing two paintings from the Abstract Adventure class at 21 Secrets, I used up the leftover paint to create some journal backgrounds.

21 Secrets: Collage Paint, and Soul

This awesome workshop comes from Tamara Laporte of Willowing, she is such a warm, endearing soul, that you immediately want to be a part of her aura.  Tamara makes it so easy and inspirational that you want to create art immediately after watching her videos! This workshop is also from 21 Secrets, so check it out!

Monday Art

I spent the holiday in my favorite place, my studio, creating new curtains. 

My "assistant"
Zoe (who desperately needs a haircut)

Guess she got tired of sleeping with my beads and baubles!
