About Lawanaca

I am a person who is dedicated to helping the children express themselves through Art. I've worked at a private school where I taught pre-k to 8 grade children how to honor and respect their artistic abilities. I helped them see the value in their creative mind. My student learned to be proud and expressive in their own art form. I taught them structure and inspiration (the who, what, when, and where took look for it) and how to apply this learning to create unique renderings.

I am a diligent teacher/tutor who started my own initiative at the private school because of the lack thereof. I have my own Art classes each Saturday to influence and inspire the youth to be more creative and expressive. Given the opportunity to work with this company would be a blessing to give back and help inspire more people to become a great artist.

I created an Art initiative for Cambridge School staring from pre-k thru 8 grade and the program was very successful. It was so successful that the parents began asking me to mentor their children outside of school.

I've been a recording artist, poet and singer for over 20 years. If you want a grand Art and Music experience that is fun, light, and rewarding feel free to contact me to learn more and become a creative force with imagination and inspiration.
