Before teaching here at Prue Public Schools I was a professional artist for several years working independent and with galleries. I have been in several art shows and featured in magazines and newspapers and was a guest teacher at Oklahoma State University. I have traveled to Europe and Asia on several occasions to study art and architecture which I have implemented into my classes here at Prue. It is my goal to expose students to a variety of different cultures through my Greco-Roman and Humanities classes and to instill a professional attitude and work ethic into my studio classes. I currently teach basic to advance drawing classes, college level lecture classes, and a sculpting class which involves making Italian styled sculptures.
