As an artist I enjoy anything where I can get my hands dirty and keep them busy. I enjoy oil painting and watercolor, charcoal and pastel drawing, throwing pottery on the wheel, and making beaded jewelry. I've dabbled in glass lamp-work, metal-smithing, bronze casting, wood and stone carving, photography, and printmaking.
In my free time (if I find any!), you can find me playing with our sons and pups, being with friends and family, and, if I get the chance, traveling and skiing! I can proudly mark off three continents, two of which I've skied on.
Over the past few years I have been working on integrating more technology into my classroom, while not losing the best aspect of of art: hands-on creation and experience. Enjoy the site!
