Growing up in the Northeast, close to the Atlantic ocean, I was struck at an early age by the beauty and power of the natural world. I painted with Martin R. Ahearn, a member of the American Watercolor Society. I earned a BFA at Syracuse University, N.Y. This provided the foundation for my artistic core and opened my mind to the S.U. London Art Center. I have traveled extensively throughout Europe, Mexico, Belize, British Virgin Islands, Alaska, Hawaii and the United States.
ART TEACHING VALUES:
I encourage and build student confidence in their knowledge, emotional growth, and physical development. I have a calm and organized manner with children. I am able to direct and follow through in organizing tasks and projects for groups. I am patient, understanding, and respectful of all children’s unique abilities and learning dispositions. I recognize the importance of observation, unbiased judgment, positive discipline and innovation, to assist those who are struggling.
