I am an artist, art teacher, and photographer. As an artist and art teacher I hope to inspire other artists. I have the most amazing career-- watching young people create and teaching them new skills.  As a photographer I strive to capture the unspoken stories that surround us.  Travel and art help me take in this amazing world we live in.  Whether snapping a photo, planting a flower, or teaching color theory, I am visually connected to my environment... If only that would help with my terrible sense of direction!
