I love to teach young children and have almost 20 years of experience teaching Art in the Public Schools. I have been an artist most of my life, specializing in Drawing and Painting.I double majored in Art and Music in College and worked as a Graphic Designer upon graduation. I discovered that my passion was teaching so I returned to University of Florida and received a Master's degree in Art Education. Throughout my formal Art education I continued to play my flute with orchestras and bands in the community. I have also been a flute instructor to children and adults. I am eager to share my knowledge of the flute and all of the techniques in Art that I have developed over the years.
I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design. Also a Masters in Art Education from University of Florida. I have taught Art in the Public Schools for over 15 years and am certified to teach Art K - 12. I also worked as a Graphic Designer and have exhibited my art work in exhibitions. My favorite drawing mediums are pencil (graphite and colored) oil pastels, chalk pastels, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor pencil, etc.
I began learning the flute in middle school, and continued in high school, where I began to study privately. I performed in my high school bands and the orchestra. I continued my flute study in college both at University of Florida, where I performed in the Wind Ensemble, Marching Band and Orchestra. I studied flute with Sarah Fouse and participated in various master classes during the summer. I taught flute while I was attending college. While attending Rhode Island School of Design, I performed in the Brown University Orchestra and studied flute at Boston University. I presently play with a trio (violin and guitar) for weddings and parties.
I have worked with many different mediums in Art. I love to paint, and most recently, I have specialized more in Watercolors, although I have also worked in Oils and Acrylics. I have understanding of color mixing and using the color wheel, as well as familiarity in many styles of painting. I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Rhode Island School of Design.
