What I do

I love spending time with my adult children and grandchildren. They love baking and doing art projects with me. I am an avid cook and love trying my hand at new ethnic cuisines. My children all received excellent educations going through the Old Orchard Beach public school system. One is a director of nursing, one a physical therapist and one a machinist.

I also spend time being creative in the fiber arts and painting. I also love to read historical fiction.

I am a PreK-2 Visual Arts Teacher at Jameson School since August 2000. I also taught Elementary Art in South Berwick, Maine and the M.S.A.D. 6 system. I have a BFA degree with honors from Alfred University. I have worked as a mentor to student art teachers from U.S.M., MECA and U.N.E. in order to give back to the field I am so passionate about.

Besides teaching art in the public school system I have worked in the field of professional photography, custom art framing, art instructor for the international organization Elderhostel, and 5 years as a Summer Arts director at Oceanwood Camp and Conference Center.
