8th Grade Visual Arts
Teachers & Staff
As an artist, I have experience in a variety of mediums including photography, illustration, painting, ceramics, glass blowing, and screen printing. I attended Virginia Commonwealth University and received a BFA in Photography and film. I have a passion for illustration and watercolors and uses them to explore the beauty of the nature world during my travels. As an educator, I received a MA in Art Teaching from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. I believe that all students deserve to explore and express their ideas through art and should feel confident in their artistic ability. I believe art is not just about technical skills, but about the ability to think creatively, learning from mistakes by persisting, and connecting to personal experience and the world outside the classroom. In my free time, in addition to making my own art, I enjoy hanging out my goldendoodle and spending time outside hiking, backpacking and biking.
