Welcome to my site! I absolutely love teaching art. I graduated in 2009 with a BFA in Printmaking and a BA in Art Education, and returned to BYU to get my MA in Art Education in 2011. I spent 5 wonderful years teaching art with the Beverley Taylor Sorenson Arts Learning Program as an elementary art specialist. I currently work for BYU supervising student teachers and teach private art lessons in various locations. Most of my time is spent at home with my favorite projects to date, my son Jude and my daughter, Eva.
