I am a licensed educator with an endorsement in art education.
I have been teaching since 2001 and currently teach K-4 art in Lake County Illinois.
I received the 2014 Illinois Elementary Art Educator of the Year award from the Illinois Art Education Association.
I have taught many art workshops for children and adults in IL and WI as well as at Art for All Conventions around the US.
While I have studied and taught a wide variety of artistic mediums and techniques I specialize in Needle Felting with wool fibers.
Workshops that I have taught:
Fabulously Fuzzy – (needle felting)
Metal Manipulations – (textured metal relief sculptures)
Altered Altoid Tins – (Mixed Media upcycling to create small shadow box sculptures or treasure chests)
Monoprinting without a Press – (Gelli Arts Printing)
Artist Trading Cards – (small works of art that can be traded with others all around the world)
