I was an elementary school teacher for 30 years. During my teaching career, I found that my Art background provided me with many essential teaching tools such as: resiliency, perseverance, creative thinking and problem solving. I continued to nurture my artistry to support my teaching career, attending classes and workshops.
As I approached retirement, and spurred on by friends, I began to entertain the idea of sharing my Art with a larger audience. I began to show my Art in 2015, making the move to my second career in 2016.
