About Me

Hello! I have loved art and dreamed of becoming an art teacher since I was a child! You may recognize me from my job at the Peninsula Fine Arts Center.  I created Pfac's popular camps, school programming, and outreach events for the community.

When I learned that Pfac was closing, I started a mobile art teaching business, Art Teacher 2 Go, and began teaching at the Williamsburg Classical Academy (while I finished my tenure at PFAC...and homeschooled my children because of COVID-19). Thank goodness for coffee! I love being a mobile art teacher, but I don't love all the driving.  So I'm opening my own studio and I cannot wait!

When I'm not teaching art, you can find me checking out local museums, parks, beaches, and hanging out with my family. We especially love going to donut shops! 

I hold BA degrees in Psychology and Fine Arts from Christopher Newport University. I returned to CNU a few years later to attend its teacher certification program. I'm licensed as both a visual arts teacher for grades K-12 and a classroom teacher for grades K-6. I'm CPR and First Aid certified for babies, children, and adults.
