NN Teaching Artists (6).png

I am a free spirited, creative person who is passionate about art in all forms. I attended the N.C. School of the Arts for high school and graduated with a degree in visual arts. I then attended Virginia Commonwealth University and received a B.F.A. in fashion design. I completed my master’s degree in art education at Kennesaw State University. Opportunity has allowed me to teach both art and fashion on a professional level. After a brief stint teaching art in the Peace Corps, Ghana, I returned to the states and had several careers in product design, art instruction, costume design, quilting, fashion design and more recently my fine arts roots. I am mompreneur of five wonderful sons ages 12-20. My daily joy comes from creating new artwork, writing poetry, baking, reading, traveling, coffee and a mean game of Scrabble. It is my intention to be an ambassador for joy!
