  • I've been a teacher for roughly 8 years. I've been an artist and storyteller all of my life. I've been internationally published. I am involved with local arts festivals and proceedings where I often create "live art" and caricatures (which I've been doing since I was 15). I have work in the Alley behind the Greensburg Cultural Trust. I've exhibited at WCCC, The Headkeeper Tappas Bar and I've been featured in the Art Nationals. I have aided in curating both student and professional exhibitions. [More Information]
