Artist Statement:

I was born and raised in the (very cold) state of Minnesota, attended Bemidji State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education.  After living and teaching in Chicago for three years I had the opportunity to move to Las Vegas Nevada and did so eagerly.  After teaching with the Clark County School District for three years it was time for a new school and a new professional challenge.  Bishop Gorman has been an amazing place to work; every day I learn as much as I teach, and I hope that remains true for the rest of my career.  

I’m interested in experimenting with all forms of art.  I gravitate toward three dimensional design, but I always plan with drawings and I love documenting with photography.  Every type of visual art comes with its own challenges and opportunities, and I’m always looking for something new to explore.
