I was a studio art major at Colorado College then earned a Masters in Education at CU Boulder. Working with students for twenty years has been an honor. To be part of the magic of creating art with them inspires me every year. I have two boys in the BVSD schools and a blended family with a total of eight. At home, we have a Newfoundland /Great Pyrenees mix and a cat that loves to hunt. Picture books are one of my true treasures and I can read/view them over and over. The authors and illustrators introduce many of our art projects. My most recent favorite is Imagine A World by Rob Gonsalves that I read to Fifth grade. We created our own world ceramic sculptures.
