I'm a high school photography teacher with several years of industry experience who loves showing students of all ages how to take better photos. I love encouraging budding artists! If you want to improve your composition, understand settings on your DSLR camera, get feedback on photos, understand the basics of light/photo editing, and just generally control how your photos turn out, I'm your gal! Talking with you about your photos is my jam!

I also love to teach the elements and principles of art and design; portfolio building; and writing four-step formal critiques, artist statements, and reflections. I'm happy to provide editing and writing coaching.

Photography

I have taught high school photography for five years beginning in 2016 at Northwood High School in Pittsboro, NC. I am certified in the state of North Carolina to teach K-12 Art (as well as 9-12 Science). I completed a two-year post-bacc program with all of the in-major courses required for a B.A. at UNC Asheville, a Master's in Teaching at UNC Chapel Hill, as well as a B.S. at UNC Chapel Hill. My years of industry experience as a freelance photographer, contributing photographer for WNC Magazine, as a junior designer for Lark Crafts, a creative craft book publisher, as well as work in a daycare, after-school care at primary schools in Australia, and in self-contained autism classrooms has given me the ability to support young students at all levels, in addition to high school.
