5 Fun Facts
1. I am an illustrator, graphic designer, and landscape photographer with over ten years of professional experience.
2. I grew up on an acreage in Iowa. This allowed me the time to observe nature and the freedom (and necessity) to be creative in order to fill the extra moments after I finished riding horses, running, and school.
3. I am also a life-long learner, with a degree in Integrated Visual Arts, minors in Journalism and Spanish, and an Elementary Education degree with endorsements in Special Education and Reading.
I understand how people learn and can use my art to illustrate a point.
4. My favorite medium is ball-point pen. Many artists like to start sketching with a pencil, then ink last,
but I prefer to do an entire piece of art in ink. Ink flows more freely and I think less about what I am doing and relax into the experience of creating quickly with a pen.
5. I feel so fortunate to have this opportunity to work with people of all ages at ArtFusion 19464. I get to use my background as an artist and teaching knowledge to collaborate with others to create art. What’s not to love?!
