For the last 20 years, I have taught in the Washington Elementary School District in Phoenix, AZ as a 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th grade teacher.  I've always been told how creative I was in the classroom and how I brought that to my students as well.  Often my students would say, "You should be an artist!"  Well, I finally decided to!
     I have always loved to draw, but my painting actually started when I took a tole painting class many years ago.  I loved the experience and was hooked.  Then when my son was born about 17 years ago, I remember thinking, "If I can paint on wood, why not walls?" That was my beginning.  
     I have mostly painted for friends and family in the past.  I find much joy and creativity in my painting.  My goal is to bring that to your home as well.  I love to see the final product and know my talent made someone happy.
