I have been teaching Art for my entire adult life in one setting or another. In the past ten years I have been teaching for the Fairbanks North Star Borough School District, in addition to private instruction and workshops. I have a BA in Painting and Printmaking, and an MFA in Ceramics. I am an active member of the Fairbanks arts community and show locally. I am an illustrator, a painter, a potter, a singer, a knitter, a gardner, a cat-lover and a teacher.
