Creativity has always played an important role in my life.  As a student, a parent and a teacher my creativity has added value to  my experiences.  It is such a gift to be able to teach art full time.  My hope is that experiences in my art classroom will encourage my students to continue to explore their creative selves beyond the walls of the school.  Creativity is more than a 75 minute experience from Monday to Friday.  If you already a creative soul then I hope that your art class empowers you to continue to express yourself as a dancer, writer, singer, actor, or musician.  I also hope that you may consider embracing visual art as a way to also express your creative self.  If you do not see yourself as a creative soul, perhaps you just need a little nudge.  Don't be afraid to take a creative risk.  You might just surprise yourself :)

Here is a snapshot of my studio and some of my paintings.
