I am passionate about art and art education. I make art daily, primarily painting and drawing. I am resilient, resourceful and can make lesson plans with very little lead time and few materials if need be. I have been teaching since I was 16 years old (bartering drawing lessons for the use of a horse) and never stopped. I love nature and most of my work contains references to humans, animals and nature. Most of my work springs from personal observation either through sketches or my own photos.

Creative Approach and Experiences Offered

Using recycled materials and cast-offs where possible, I am a huge fan of cross-curricular projects - working across subjects to enrich learning (e.g. ecosystem mural). I can teach online and have facilitated a few workshops on-line. Some ready-made workshops are: mandalas, personal geographies (map-making the artistic way), lantern-making out of recycled materials, printmaking with recycled materials, tessellations inspired by MC Escher (math cross-curricular), zines and hand-made artist books. I can also teach drawing techniques (e.g. fairy tale illustrations), puppet-making, colour theory and almost anything in the visual arts you can do at home. I have worked with seniors, adults, CEGEP students, elementary school as well as secondary school. I have done book-making projects I call Senior memoirs where teens pair with Seniors to co-create a handmade book. I love collaborating and would be very open to taking your idea and making it happen.
