I resigned from teaching in June 2021 after being at Varina High School in the Richmond, VA area for 9 years. I taught grades 9-12 in intro to art, 4 levels of graphic design and 3 levels of ceramics. I am happiest when I am creating and making a mess in my studio. Clay is my favorite medium to work with but I also work with stained glass and paint.
I have always made and gifted work, but I really began selling my work in September 2019. I started with a craft show and creating an Etsy shop. Then a few months later, all events were being cancelled and I was teaching from home. I was able to really delve into my craft and was just overall so much happier than being in the classroom. I decided that I needed to sell my work full time and move back to PA. I have so many ideas that I can’t wait to bring to life. I love making custom pieces for people and am always looking for a new challenge.

Education & Training
I graduated summa cum laude in the honors program from Waynesburg University in 2012. I have a BFA in Art Education with a K-12 endorsement. I have taken countless college courses since to further my education in the arts. But like most artists, I am constantly learning and improving my craft every day by creating.
