I have had to privilege to serve children and families for the past 25 years as an Artist. My experience includes collaborations with Private, Public, Montessori, Charter and Home Schools. Science Centers, Historical Sites, Arts and History Centers have also hosted my venues. I’ve travelled by horse and buggy, lived in Civil War Forts, caused explosions and set myself on fire several times all in the name of Passion. I am passionate about teaching students about my crafts, my history and my adventures. My curriculum expands across a broad range of subjects: Visual Art, Music, Dance, storytelling and DRAMA!
