I graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education. I have my Pennsylvania and Texas Teaching certificate in kindergarden-12th Grade Art. I am currently an art teacher at a high school in Frisco, Texas. I have more than 20 years of art teaching experience with both beginners and advanced students both in public school and privately.

I believe that anyone can be taught to Draw Sculpt or Paint if they have one basic ingredient, desire. Other areas of expertise I bring are more than 20 years of Graphic design both professionally and at the high school and middle school levels. Some of the programs I can teach are Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and After Effects, I also have produced and taught animation on various levels professionally.

I have acted professionally and had many staring roles in college and amateur theater. I specialize in teaching improvisational techniques of acting which focus on comedy. I look forward to hearing from you soon about how I can help you learn your desired skill.
