Everything I do is infused with happiness and energy.  I am extremely passionate about teaching and I apply instruction touched with humor, honesty, and humility to help enrich the lives of every student.  As an educator, my goal is to help students with their individual needs, provide support throughout their creative exploration, and help them develop the skills required to continue problem solving outside of the classroom.  

Currently an instructor at BARN, The Bainbridge Artisans Resource Network, on Bainbridge Island, Washington, I have developed successful lapidary and enameling programs while also serving as the Studio Lead.  New classes are being added quarterly.

In 2019 I developed a new lapidary program and have added several stone cutting and carving classes to this curriculum. A few new classes are also coming in 2020.   I have just recently begun development of a new enameling program and plan to add multiple classes to this curriculum over the course of this year.  Come and join the fun!  I promise to provide you with an action-packed class where you will walk away with new skills and completed pieces.
