Degrees and Certifications:
I’m an East Carolina graduate with a BFA in painting and a degree in education. I worked in Boston before I moved back to North Carolina and started a family. I have one daughter in 6th grade and a son in 9th grade. We have two Siberian Huskies and live in a big red barn in the middle of a field.
My goal as an art educator is to inspire every student to become the best artist they can be. I strive to teach students that everyone has talent, and that talent needs to be nurtured and valued. At the end of each semester I want every student to have a sketchbook full of ideas and technique experimentations, a greater knowledge of art professions, and a respect for the arts.
