I have been an artist and maker all my life, but for the last fifteen years I’ve been a Computer Graphics Adjunct Professor at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in downtown Los Angeles, as well as a freelance illustrator and graphic artist. Before that, I was an Art Director for L3i Technologies, a company that specialized in multimedia and eLearning solutions.
I’m a prolific reader and coffee drinker, and I especially love to draw and paint. Previous to moving to LA, I’ve done a little bit of everything in a few creative fields, from singing and acting in musical dinner theater, to Visual Merchandising and Window Display, to party planner --- I am happiest when I’m doing something creative. I have a husband, two daughters, two marmalade cats, and the most adorable French Bulldog/Boston Terrier mix that has ever been rescued! (I might be a little biased ☺)
Teaching art to kids is one of my favorite things to do, and I am hoping to help instill a life-long love of art, artists, and all things creative in my students. It is my privilege to teach your child!
