I felt a calling to bring the fulfillment and self-empowerment of creativity into the lives of others. Beyond the traditional "art school" setting that is often rigid and strict, I knew there was a huge need for a nurturing, encouraging, and a positive approach to artistic self-expression. I enjoy sharing my passion, knowledge and love of art with my students. Every day is a joy seeing the enthusiasm of my students." art lessons for kids and adults in Raleigh

I grew up in Atlanta GA where I was exposed to the arts at an early age. My college degree in art, at the Lamar Dodd School of Art (University of Georgia), was just the beginning of a lifelong love affair with my studio and the possibilities that lived there.
I have always loved children and I am blessed to have four of my own. I developed a passion for teaching them art when they were young. When my last one entered kindergarten, I began teaching art at Our Lady of Lourdes school for eight years, until I made a job change to decorative finishing. I painted murals and did architectural finishes for many years in Raleigh and Virginia Beach. I also continued to teach art privately in my studio.
After my kids left home, I missed the enthusiasm, curiosity and wonder that embodies the spirit of a child. I decided to return to teaching.
I am thrilled to be a part of TC Artworks!
