I have spent the last 13 years as a middle and high school Visual Arts teacher, and am dedicated to making sure my Art muscles don’t get too rusty.  I am a Longmont native, and a graduate of the CSU Art Education program as well as the UNC Art and Design Masters program.  Although I work in many media, I tend to make my home in drawing, painting, and mixed media. My main goal in creating Art is to combine a bit of self-expression, storytelling, whimsy, and intrigue.  I strive to encourage viewers to question what they see, to ask why, to wonder, and to use their own imaginations to see things from a new perspective.”
