Elementary Art

I was introduced to art by my father who taught me basic art techniques and instilled in me a love of drawing and painting. After finishing high school in Ohio I attended BYU and graduated with a BA in art.

Upon finishing school in Utah I moved to Sacramento, California where I met and married my amazing math and science loving husband and we raised four math/science minded boys. I kept my creative juices flowing by taking classes at local junior colleges. I was fortunate to be a part of the High Hand Art Gallery in Loomis, California where I found a creative art "family" who inspired and pushed me to be a better artist. I honed my teaching skills teaching after school art programs and art residencies at various schools in Sacramento.

Eight years ago with my boys grown and pursuing their own paths, my husband and I moved to American Fork where we have enjoyed fixing up our home, teaching, traveling, hiking and spending time with family and friends. This will be my sixth year teaching art at Mountainville. I am happy to have the opportunity to be here to see my students grow and develop their art skills and creativity each year.
