I started teaching art when I was 19 years old at the Monarch School, a homeless/at risk school in San Diego. Since then I taught at numerous schools in San Diego, Portland, San Fransisco before opening my own art school, My Art Shed in 2009. I believe in the power of creative exploration and it's ability to enhance a child's motor skills, confidence, observation and critical thinking. I feel that now, more than ever, children need to be able to learn how to express themselves and my passion is teaching them how to do so through art. These formative childhood years are so fleeting, yet they are the most important years of a child's life. It is my desire to give my students the tools and confidence to go on to build a better world.
