20 years of classroom teaching in grades K-12. Master Degree in Art Education from the University of Florida. Prior to receiving my Art Education Degree, I was an artist in residence in the Lake Region Area in North Eastern North Dakota. Art is not only what I do for a living, it is how I live my life. Everything you see around you passes through an artist's hand. There is nothing more gratifying than to be able to look at something and recreate it with your own perspective. I hope those that take this art class will experience that same enjoyment.
