I am an elementary,middle, and high school art teacher as well as a digital photography teacher. This blog was born because I’ve been teaching art for a long time and I felt it was time to share the work of my students. I am proud of their artwork and I am proud of the work I have done with them as their teacher. I’ve worked with students from a variety of age groups, from kindergarten through college level, and I’ve taught students from varied cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. In addition to teaching, I create handmade silver jewelry in a metals studio in my home. For several years I’ve sold my jewelry under the brand name Bud and Branch. There are photographs of my jewelry on this site.
I share my home with my wonderful daughter, my sweet son, my husband, our German Shepherd, and our silver cat. In addition to photography and jewelry fabrication, I also enjoy hiking, running, and gardening. I tend several flower gardens and one “food garden”. I have lived in many places including Alaska and Germany and I frequently travel to Colorado. I earned a BFA from Savannah College of Art and Design and an MFA from Ohio State University. I attended Moore College of Art and Design in downtown Philadelphia and earned certification to teach art to grades K-12. I’ve also hosted several student teachers from Moore College of Art in my classroom and I recently taught a Young Artist Workshop photography course at the school. For a more formal listing of my work experience please view my resume.
