• Welcome to Art! This year I will be teaching Art 1, 2, and 3. I am thrilled to be teaching your child this year. This is my second year here and my 19th year teaching.  

    I'm a Loyola Marymount Alumni with a BFA and started my career as an animator in the Games Industry. My oil paintings have been in Galleries from the west coast to Texas.  My four children and I moved to Texas ten years ago from Seattle, WA, and became a house divided (Giggem and Hook em Horns!) soon after. My youngest, my daughter, is in sixth grade.

    I greatly enjoy traveling, being outdoors, and playing games.  My hobbies include anything outdoors - golfing, hiking, running, and kayaking...

    Life is your canvas, only you can paint it.  I am here to help guide your student to express themselves. And don't worry! I can't draw a straight line either!
