Degrees and Certifications:
I am an artist, art advocate, and teacher living in Houston, Texas. After receiving my BFA in Illustration, I moved to Houston to pursue a career in art restoration. After an apprenticeship in conservation techniques, I worked as a colorist specializing in 14th and 15th century atlas. Working as a full-time painter was the best thing that ever happened to me, because it helped me to realize i wanted to be a teacher. Being in a place where I can be of value to young creative students is a wonderful way to spend life. I still paint most evenings and also teach and practice yoga.
