Get to Know
i\'m a late bloomer and didn\'t start making art until after i was 40, although i\'ve always been creative. i\'ve worked in clay and made jewelry, also, and love paper mache.
my math students have emotional and behavioral disorders, so art is a welcome refuge at the end of the day. i treasure the blocks of time i have off as a teacher to focus on my art.
i\'m fairly prolific and it became clear to me at some point that i needed an outlet for my work!
