I am a professional artist, educator, writer and speaker with degrees from Indiana University, Miami University, and The Ohio State University. I have taught across the country – from New York to California – and across the spectrum of ages – from Kindergarten to Graduate School. My life experiences contribute to what I create on paper and canvass, how I structure my classroom, and the topics I pursue in my research. I am happy to the opportunity to share these experiences with you here.
As an artist I’m interested in a diversity of media. Most of my work falls into some compilation of drawing, painting, sculpture, and printmaking, but I am continually experimenting with everything from bookbinding to glazing, fabric dying to bead making… anything that sparks my imagination and challenges my artistic skills.
