Fun Fact

I love cats and have three.

Why do you teach? What is the impact you hope to make on students?

I teach to share my love of art and to show that anyone can be successful at it. Welcoming art into your life is an experience that can last a life time and provide peace, beauty, and a sense of accomplishment.

Why Roycemore?

Roycemore has a loving caring environment where I have autonomy to create my own art lessons and teach on a team of very dedicated, smart teachers. I feel I am a part of a caring community that supports art.
