Experience

Art

The Story:

It was Grade Two...the day I completed an oil pastel bird that I first realized I wanted to free others up to express themselves too. Eventually, my natural passion and professional training merged into years of teaching countless students of various ages and skill levels. Many private lessons, art workshops, school courses, and paint nights later, I still absolutely love it! In fact, seeing the spark of joy in someone's eyes when they are pleased with their creation remains one of the most satisfying experiences in my life.

In light of Covid-19...
