I am thoroughly enjoying my first year teaching Art at Mayfield Intermediate School. Prior to joining the Mayfield family, I taught Art for 7 years to students, Pre-K through 7th grade, in King and Queen County. I graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University with a Master of Art Education degree.
Exploring and creating art in a variety of media has always been part of my life. I relish the learning process including envisioning, planning, and constructing something new. I am especially fond of attending art fairs, shows, and museums. They provide inspiration as well as unique shopping oportunities. Painting was my first passion. Next I dabbled in ceramics, until I discovered making jewelry with metal clay.
When I am not teaching or involved in art, I love spending time with family and friends. We like kayaking, being outdoors, watching the birds, and trying foods from other cultures.
