When I am not teaching, I am painting! Watercolor painting is my passion and what I want to do when I grow up! I usually find my inspiration in a garden. I am thrilled to spend the summer amongst the most inspiring of people. When I am not painting, I am teaching! Having taught Art for over 13 years at St. Catherine of Siena Parish School here in Laguna Beach, I have a passion for teaching art, design and creating things. In May, our school with the help of Alumni, present on our own child-friendly version of Pageant of the Masters! I am honored to have students receive awards in the Festival of the Arts, Imagination Celebration and Orange County School of the Arts. Our art program evolved from art-on-a-cart, with storage in the basement, to a beautiful art room in which students visit each week. The every changing curriculum includes clay, weaving, painting, sculpture, and integrating computer graphics.
