Artist’s Statement

I love being a Teaching Artist.

Since my childhood, I have always created art. It’s a great stress relieving outlet and brings balance in my life. Creating art has the same effect for the participants in my classes. Self-expression provides awareness and unity is strengthened through my art programs. The process of art making enhances focus and expands productivity. Helping people get comfortable with their creativity is one of the most rewarding aspects of being an art instructor. My creativity is constantly being influenced by my students.

My own illustrations are inspired, not only by my students, but also by my love of nature and my Textile Design background. Pen & Ink, Oil Pastels and Paper Graphics are my favorite art forms.

I accept commissions for individual and commercial projects; welcoming clients’ input to ensure collaborative, custom pieces. I strive to get people involved in the process of art making. Promoting Social Creativity and the therapeutic benefits of self-expression through visual art will always be focal points in my life.
