I am a highly qualified art instructor with over 35 years of experience with all grade levels K-12 and community college. I believe that, "People want to know that you care before they will care what you know." I can teach drawing, painting, graphic design, photography, glass arts/stained, fused, lamp working. I have most recently worked at the community college level and taught Art History as part of my full time schedule. I can also teach creative thinking skills, as well as display and presentation of art works.

I am the owner/operator of a fine/commercial art and photography company.
