My passion for art began as a child watching my Mom draw pictures as she held me in her lap. I decided to pursue an education in Fine Arts while attending Southampton High School  where I enrolled in art classes I, II, & III.  I recieved my Bachelors degree from Virginia State University and met the love of my life.  We were married and have three beautiful children.  I am also the proud grandmother of six  amazing, energetic, and wonderful grandchildren. 

My experience as parent and grandparent enables me to interact and relate to all children and help them have a passion for art as well.
