About me

All about Mrs. Boykin--

From a young age I began spending a countless number of hours using my mom's needle to sew uncanny attire for my dolls. I learned the art of sewing from my grandma as well as cooking and all that good stuff. Growing up I pressed fresh flowers in phonebooks creating multi-media paintings, as well as creating things such as clay magnets for my family's fridges. Being creative is innately within me. I create art that restores and preserves memories. My greatest love is to help others find their inspiration for creating their art, whatever style it may be in. When I am not teaching, my greatest loves are my faith and family including my husband, daughter and son. I also like spending time outdoors running, swimming, you name it!
