After 15 great years of working in the commercial photography industry, I realized my heart was leading me in a new direction.  I wanted to make a difference while I’m here.  I wanted to do something that inspires joy and has greater meaning beyond myself. I now create art for children’s rooms and teach self-esteem enrichment for youth.  Ultimately, my goal is to help children and teens become confident and happy individuals with strong communication skills.  I use visual art as a tool to help convey these skills. I truly enjoy working with children of all ages. It makes my heart sing to help them express their inner self through art. I want to help them realize how special they are. I believe the spread of self-confidence will help overcome the tragedies our youth deal with on a daily basis.

My inspiration comes from my two adorable children. They are a blast and I love them beyond measure.  I’m so blessed to have a supportive and loving husband, amazing family and wonderful friends.  I value my life and have gratitude for each day.

Also, I want to say that could see these gentlemen as visting artists in residence in the KCMO school district. They are so constructive and positive."    KC Public Schools Teacher
