I grew up in Austin and have always had a passion for creating. I believe art is a creative area of life that people should feel excited to explore and I find joy in helping people develop their artistic skills. I graduated from Abilene Christian University with a BFA in Studio Art where I discovered an enthusiasm for teaching. I went on to receive a Masters in Art Education from the University of Texas at Austin. There, I learned practical ways to apply different teaching methods to fit the needs of the student. After teaching at Art Plus Academy since 2015, I can say that I have found a place that is fulfilling to me professionally and creatively. I am excited to be a part of this community and look forward to contributing to the development of my students’ art.
