I'm a Teaching Artist with 10+ years of experience working with all ages across York County at organizations like:

Are you interested in developing your own unique artistic voice and practice? I'd love to talk with you! 

I offer custom private or group workshops that will grow your confidence, self expression, and personal style using various mediums and techniques. 

My teaching philosophy is guided by my belief in equity, compassion, and positivity. I am a firm believer that step-by-step arts projects don't work for people, especially when it comes to young people. By allowing my students to truly play and discover, this instills a strong sense of pride, excitement, and authentic creation- which can only be a good thing.

A study by Penn State University states, "Research shows that art activities develop brain capacity in early childhood. Art engages children’s senses in open-ended play and supports the development of cognitive, social-emotional and multi-sensory skills."
