Who I am...

Art is something that I have practiced all of my life... but I have never been formally trained...


My full time job during the day is a high school teacher.  I also teach a few different classes at a local community college in the evenings.  Before I became a teacher, I was an engineer.  My technical knowledge is put to good use in the classroom, teaching engineering. 


In my spare time, I do enjoy reading, movies, spending time with my dog, friends, and family.  I am always looking to learn new skills and have "stretched" myself creatively.  My chosen art medium is colored pencils.  However, I have recently started to work with more ink, I have started to paint (look for postings of my work!), and have taken a ceramics class.  I do also like to work with jewelry, fabrics, and graphic design. 


Most recently, I purchased a 3D printer for myself.  I have 3D modeling skills from my engineering and design background, so I am putting them to use here.  I am using these skills to branch out into using the 3D printer to design and make various artistic and functional products.
