Teaching art combines 2 of my passions. I give lessons in varied mediums, including acrylic, watercolor, clay, pastel & paper maché.
Currently, I teach in Murfreesboro and Smyrna (grades 1-12). Teaching Middle School and High School keeps me sharp and I keep learning. My younger friends, 1st-3rd Grades, share my wild enthusiasm for painting.
I studied art in High School (Lebanon, TN), college (MTSU) and today (library). Some of my painting and make-up artistry can be seen onstage at a Lamplighter's Theater Company show. I've painted sets with them since 2004.
I am humbled that God has trusted me with artistic gift and teaching. It has certainly colored my life, and given me opportunity to share a joy of color with others.
