|After graduating from Pennsylvania State University with a major in Fine Art, I worked in a variety of capacities. Finding commercial art lacking the creativity I desired and frustrating ("have this on my desk by 5:30"), I worked outdoors and in florist shops before finding teaching. I've been teaching art and ceramics to highschool students since 1993 and find this to be a great niche for imparting my knowledge as well as deriving inspiration from the creativity of my students. |
After moving from New England to North Carolina in 2005, I found a great day school and teach high school art while working with horses on the side. Animals have always been a high priority in my life, and a day doesn't go by that they don't make me smile or laugh out loud. I am the proud owner of two border collies and three horses, and one aloof cat. We enjoy hours exploring the mountains and trails of our new home. Artistically, I've always been drawn to realism, and focus primarily on the natural world. Media runs from acrylic, graphite and watercolor to clay; and subjects range from animals, people and houses to flowers. I have won several awards for my artwork, and my "Art Dog Of Kent" was featured in a book.
