I enjoy seeing my students year after year, getting to know them better as artists and people is a real joy!

I earned my Masters from NYU in Visual Art Education, but some of my best learning as an educator has taken place in the classroom.

At this point in my art life, I mainly make sculptures using clay but can also enjoy sketching and drawing!

My husband and I love doing “outdoorsy stuff” like hiking and biking, we hope to explore the outdoors with our new addition,  Sophie, very soon.
This is my 10th year with PS 261, and I look forward to many more!
