I am originally from Hampton Virginia. I received an AA in Fine Arts From Thomas Nelson Community College in Hampton. Then I attended undergraduate school at VCU in Richmond, Virginia to receive a BFA in Sculpture and Painting and Printmaking. From there I went on to attend Western New Mexico University In Silver City New Mexico to receive my Masters In Elementary Education. I am now in my thirteenth year of teaching art at Sinclair Elementary. I enjoy the diversity of Students we have at Sinclair and each day I look forward to seeing their smiling faces in my classroom.
