Hey everyone! I became an art teacher so that I can do what I love, while entertaining students and continuing to learn myself! After earning my degree in Art Education from Penn State in 2006 (We are!), I taught high school art in both public and private school settings in Washington, DC and Philadelphia, PA. I now have over ten years of teaching experience, and have taught with many different mediums including clay, graphite, collage, book-making, graphic design, photography, and of course, painting!

During my summers, I was able to work with elementary and middle school aged children while teaching art camps at Bucks County Community College in Newtown, PA. Now that I am happily settled in Lancaster with my husband Jon, I am very excited to share my love of creating with my community. I feel strongly that adults, as well as children, need time to relax, have fun, and connect with their inner creativity! 

Outside of teaching and art-making on my own, I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling whenever possible (Italy is still on my list!), maintaining my own art blog and online Etsy shop, and snuggling with my two gray kitties and sweet Corgi puppy!
