I am a San Diego Native who has loved all things art since I can remember. One of my first memories of my first day of kindergarten was entering the room and seeing the easels, paints and smelling the oil skin cloth on the back of the easels. I couldn't wait to start painting!
Later on, when I was a bit older, I wasn't that interested in dolls and such...it was the art section of any store that carried any kind of art supplies that filled me with excitement and wonder. Really. I'm serious.
I would get up early, early on Saturday mornings and begin some kind of art project, while my parents were still asleep.
So, this art thing has been with me a long, long time.
It seemed only natural that when I began to think about teaching, that I would make my way into teaching art. It's been a most enjoyable profession, and I love to share what I have learned with students who also want to learn.
