My passion for art began at my grandparent's kitchen table many years ago. Together with my grandfather, we would draw pictures with crayons and markers of the world around us and characters that expressed how we felt. Today, I have traded my crayons for paintbrushes. When I am not painting, I work with elementary students, sharing my passion for art with tomorrow's future leaders (and buyers of art!). Although my grandparent's kitchen table now is the center piece in my own kitchen, I have never forgotten the importance of expressing one's ideas and the intimate connection we make when creating and viewing art. Art truly is not to be 'understood' per say, but rather experienced with our minds, our hearts and our souls.
I have earned a Bachelor's of Art from Eastern New Mexico University in Painting and a Master's of Education in Curriculum and Instruction from Grand Canyon University.
