“I developed an interest in the visual arts at an early age. That interest grew and became more intense during my high school years and while pursuing a Bachelor’s in Art Education at Taylor University and a Masters in Art Education at Ball State University. With each new drawing and painting course I became more aware of my own desire to teach painting and to pursue my personal interests in this medium.”
“Following my collegiate years, I taught art at public and private schools for thirty years, concluding my service in the classroom with an eighteen-year tenure at Cathedral High School in Indianapolis. During those wonderful years, I had the joy of instructing and guiding many very talented students who have gone on to successful, creative carriers in the arts. Daily these students inspired and challenged me.
After an extremely rewarding career in the classroom, I now find myself with the time and desire to pursue my first love of art: painting. I look forward to getting involved with the painting community of greater Indianapolis and the State of Indiana.” Learn more on Facebook.
