ARTIST | TEACHER
I have always loved art and painting. My sixth grade teacher when my family lived in Seattle, insisted that we all had to have a sketchbook and gave us plenty of time to use it. When we moved to Ft Worth I had a fabulous artist as a neighbor,who was kind enough to share her watercolor techniques with myself and 3 other pre-teenage girls.
I mention this because, these first wonderful artists started me on my magical journey to learn everything I could about color, texture, movement, tones. The more I learned the more I realized that this journey never ends ( thank goodness). It's always changing and evolving.
My deepest wish as a teacher would be to share with an open heart and mind,my love of drawing painting and creating.
As an artist my wish for you as a lover of art would be for you to see the joy, fun,and a little hard work in my pieces.
I taught art classes to all ages for the City of Arlington 13 yrs.(Cliff Nelson RC) I've been teaching the Children's classes at the upstairs Gallery for 5 yrs. along with a few private lessons also at the Upstairs Gallery.
