I'm an artist and a teacher.


At my core, I'm all about creating:  a painting, a class, an article, a home, a family.  I see the potential in empty places and enjoy making things a little nicer than I found them.


With a Masters degree in Art Education, I have taught every grade, preschool through college at some point!  I currently enjoy the privilege of teaching elementary art at our family's local Christian school.


My goal as an artist is to help others see beauty and find joy in every day life.  My vision comes from this Bible verse:


"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things" (Philippians 4:8)
