About me

Gender Female
Industry Education
Occupation mother, artist, teacher
Location California
Introduction I started out as a performing arts major and ended up as a special ed/social studies sixth grade teacher. Now after many years of teaching and two children, I've decided to live my art, no excuses. Working in education for many years has opened my eyes to the lack of creativity that children have today (let's give a big thanks to No Child Left Behind for that one!), and how important it is to nuture all forms of creativity in our children and ourselves. I encourage my kids to make art during the day, and I make my own at night. As Ali Edwards said, "living a creative life is a choice." I've made the choice to live my art, and I invite all mommies (and everyone else, for that matter) to do the same.
Interests art, scrapping, cooking, gardening, reading, history
Favorite Music Jazz, alternative, rock... really anything but rap and country
Favorite Books I've met very few books that I didn't like.
