About Me

I have a BFA in Illustration from Rhode Island School of Design. I worked for several years as a commissioned textile artist and dimensional illustrator. I returned to school to earn an MS in Textiles, Fashion Merchandising and Design from the University of Rhode Island. I had my own textile conservation business before moving to Tennessee. I earned an MAE in Curriculum and Instruction from Austin Peay State University. Teaching is my third and, by far, most rewarding career. I have been an art teacher since 2002, first at New Providence Middle and now at Northwest High. My students inspire and challenge me everyday to be a creative, flexible, persistent and open-minded teacher.
