"Like Sand through the Hour Glass"
As a professional art educator, a lot of my inspiration and artistic energy comes from the work that I do with children. I teach at a public elementary school that uses arts integration as a powerful tool to enhance student learning in every content area. I am inspired as student artworks become more meaningful as content from other disciplines are studied and incorporated into the creative process. I really enjoy nature and outdoor activities, and I love to create paintings and drawings that relate to places that I have traveled. I show my students this work hoping to inspire them in their own art-making.
