About me

Location Naperville, IL, United States
Introduction Artist, wife, mom, teacher and dog lover. I have created art my entire life, but only recently realized my need to create every day! As a child, I was always in the arts. My parents raised me to be a well rounded individual, however I LOVED creating things! I loved the connection with others and it thrilled me when someone got a thrill out of my creation. Dancing, playing the violin, sewing, baking, making & selling barrettes, macrame, beading, scrapbooks/collage, my own jewelry design business, faux design in my homes, murals, knitting, sewing and my recent journey into art journaling and mixed media. I am a former elementary and special ed. teacher. I loved teaching and working with children and incorporated art into much of my time in the classroom. Recently I have wondered why I never thought to be an art teacher! I will say I love it all and am excited about this path I am on. After falling off for many years while my children were babies, I now have the time to play and create. I am fortunate and loving it!!!
