I have taught at NCWHS since it opened. My art work consist of mixed media approaches. I create handmade journals that are both functional and decorative. They have soldered glass, canvas, clay and metal covers. I love the eclectic nature that mixed media gives. I am also involved in giving workshops on Journal Making and Altered Books.I also love working with polymer clay.I am always exploring and learning new techniques in both 2D and 3D works of art. This allows me to better be prepared for my students and helping them with their art work.I am a member of the Inside Out: Accessible Art Coop located at 200 W Monroe(Fox and Hounds Building), Bloomington.I have been a National Board Certified Teacher since 2001.Please enjoy the slideshow of some of my handmade journals and paintings.
