I am a seventh year Art Teacher at Atascadero High School! I am so pleased to be a part of the learning community here. As part of a collaborative visual arts department, I enjoy teaching art to my students to help them grow in their creativity and artistic skills. I love art, and have been a professional artist for 30 years. I exhibit my work locally through the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, and local venues. I have taught art for over twenty years to all age levels, including high school. I teach Introduction to Art, Intermediate Art, Advanced Art Techniques and AP Studio Art 2D-Design. I love living on the Central Coast, along with my husband of 27 years. I have 3 grown stepsons and 2 grandchildren who are all scattered across the west coast pursuing their dreams. I love yoga, walking in nature, working in the garden, and spending time in my art studio.
