I am very passionate about what I do. I offer the highest quality art education and experience you can give to your child in a very small class setting. The small class size offers ample 1:1 guidance and opportunity for group collaboration. I do this because I LOVE seeing the spark of enquiry and I enjoy mentoring artists through the creative process. I have guided big kids at the Rhode Island School of Design, taught children and adolescents at the Glassell Junior School of Art in Houston (the school of the MFA) and at public elementary schools in California and in Texas.
With students at the Glassell Junior School I created a dynamic large-scale bas relief mural for the Texas Children’s Hospital lobby, in Houston, as well as several other large murals throughout the hospital. I have work on permanent display at the Children’s Museum in Houston and in the private collection of Alfred C. Glassell, as well– because I had a really great creative mentor who believed in me.
I’ve been carrying that torch, ever since. I have great faith in the human capacity to think differently and to share that unique vision with others. Watching a child develop visual thinking skills is a pleasure and to ignite it is a personal joy to behold.
I’m a graduate of Texas A&M University and studied at The Rhode Island School of Design.
I renewed my CPR license in September 2017 and I have four children of my own who have given me all sorts of other useful skills.
