Degrees and Certifications:
I am a 1998 magna cum laude BFA graduate from Texas Tech University. My degree is in Art Education with all-level teacher certification. I have been married for 22 years. My husband Cody is also an artist. He has degrees in metalsmithing and jewelry design and taught for several years at the University of Louisiana Lafayette. He now works as a technical designer for James Avery Craftsman. For this reason, our family relocated to Kerrville 5 years ago. We have one son, Kai, born in August 2006. He is in 8th grade this year. He attended Tally in 5th grade.
I have been teaching art for 20 years in Texas, Iowa, and Louisiana. My areas of expertise include portraiture, acrylic painting, watercolor painting, and hand-building with clay. I'm also pretty good at drawing unicorns and cats... and unicorn-cats (thanks to student requests)!
I am proud to be a Tally Eagle and look forward to sharing my love of art and art history with my students this year!
