Famous for her work
about issues in feminism.
After college I spent several years trying to figure out how to be an artist and pay my bills. So I worked as a bartender and was an artist in my off time participating in shows and doing some commissions. I then stumbled into jobs in sales management and abandoned my art altogether for about 8 years. I got married, had 2 children and quit my sales management job in advertising. I wanted to focus my attention on my kids and begin to carve out some time to make art again. I updated my credentials and started teaching art in an elementary school in 1994. Since then I've taught art to students in all levels of public school (K-12), community college and adults at the community center. I've taken and taught courses in drawing, watercolors, painting, mixed media, printmaking, fused glass, jewelry making and many more that I can't remember. In 2003 I completed my master of interdisciplinary studies degree with a concentration in painting from Virginia Commonwealth University. Yet with all this experience and training I still have some anxiety about my art. But I'll never stop creating!

find something to inspire you. Get out a sheet of watercolor paper and lightly sketch a tree on it. Don't add any value. Tomorrow we'll add watercolor.
Tomorrow: Get out your brushes and get ready to paint.
