I’ve been teaching art for the JACS System 17 years. My love for art began when I was 10 years old and I fell in love with horses. I wanted to draw, paint, sculpt and ride horses. Farm life is a main focus in my art and, to this day, I still love horses and ride when I can. Sharing art with students is the highlight of my day.

I have 6 children and 3 grandchildren. I own a small vintage camper and I travel every summer, always going someplace I’ve never been before.
