How long have you been teaching at Spruill?  I have been teaching art camp at Spruill for 5 years.

What classes do you teach? I have taught all of the different ages of summer camp including the studio art camps for teens.  Last year I taught a bookmaking camp for teens and it was a big success! Students really enjoyed the class and I am excited to teach it again.

Best part about teaching at Spruill? I have so much fun getting to know the campers and helping them believe in themselves as they develop new skills or sharpen their existing ones.

Do you have any pets? I have a dog named Slick.

Where did you grow up?  I live in Lilburn, GA with my husband, my two daughters (9 and 6) and my dog.  I grew up in Miami, Florida and moved here in 2003.  During the school year I am a high school art teacher in Gwinnett County.  I have taught middle school and elementary school art as well.  This next school year will be my 15th year doing what I love!

Favorite Artist? Or biggest inspiration? There are many artists I love and am inspired by.  Female artists like Leonora Carrington, Bybun, and Tatiana Suarez get my creative juices flowing and make me want to put my mixed media style to work.

Guilty pleasure?  Eating sweets at any bakery.

What are you currently reading or binge watching?  Nothing right now. I am too tired from all of the summer activity! 🙂

If you could be any age for a week, what age would that be and why?  My current age of 40 because I am perfectly happy right now!

Glass half full or half empty? Or is the glass just malformed?  I always try to see my glass half full.

What is your perfect pizza?  My perfect pizza has fresh mushrooms, onions, and an Italian spiced crust.

What is the last picture you took with your phone?  A photo of one of my campers working on one of their painting projects.
