I have always loved being creative which lead me to pursue a B.F.A. in Visual Communications from Loyola University Chicago. After graduation, I designed for many well-known companies, including Spiegel Catalog, Go Daddy, Dairy Queen and McDonald's. Although I love graphic design, I have forever been impressed by the talents of young artists, which inspired me to become an Art Teacher. I live in Palm Harbor with my husband, Christopher and my two children Cameron and Greyson.
