Educator and Artist

I am an art educator/artist in Western New York. I'm passionate about bringing creativity to the forefront of our lives. My brain is always churning with new ideas for the classroom and the studio. I love sharing my joy about art because it can be transformative in this highly competitive and fast paced world. It forces us to slow down, to enjoy the moment, to take risks, to not give up, to see mistakes as opportunities, and to keep moving forward. I teach many artistic techniques in the classroom but the most important concepts I nurture in students is self-expression. Students need to trust their own ideas because that encompasses true freedom and success. As a working artist, I understand the necessary struggle to achieve that freedom and by sharing my own personal journey I hope to strengthen the student/teacher relationships.

This blog is a place where I post some of my art lessons to share with the art community, student accomplishments, personal artworks, and exhibition information. It's like a modern day journal because though personal reflection I continue to grow.

If you have any questions/suggestions please post a comment.

Thanks for coming!
