I am a long time resident of the Houston area and a graduate of the University of Houston. Art is my passion but I am also TEA certified to instruct 4-8 Science. I work hard to make sure students learn that Art is something any person can become better at if they just put forth the effort. Although I know that many of the students who take my class may not choose to become professional artists, I know that the skills they learn and grow will benefit them in any area of study they pursue. Just as any person cannot focus solely on mental or physical health, each area of study must be grown to work along with others to reach the highest overall potential. In my spare time I enjoy learning about other cultures, interesting foods, studying martial arts and trying my best to contribute to a happier and healthier community.
