I am an elementary art teacher and an artist. My first love of art was drawing and I studied it more in college. I began to love color and became a painter. I also love to throw clay on the wheel and create ceramic pieces. Art lets us explore the world around us, make connections, and use our creative minds. The process of making art is as exciting as the work you make!
