As a teacher for 7 years one of my favorite things is bringing the arts into teaching. I've taught infants through adults, beginners and advanced, and the one secret I can absolutely tell you about learning, is if you are happy then you are going to learn a lot more! I'm excited to get to know you and make you smile!

Creating watercolor herbs and floral design, as well as calligraphy is something I like to focus on. If you are interested in creating cute designs that are similar to the “Magnolia Market” style, then you’ll really enjoy my lessons.
