Creative Arts Educator

Artist in Residence

I have held the administrative role of Artist in Residence at Splitcoaststampers since 2013. In this position I create, source, and format tutorials which are published weekly, co-edit a weekly site newsletter (popular site topics, tutorial feedback, and an "Ask the Artist" column where I answer crafty questions from our readers), and participate in product testing and reviews as part of our Product Focus team. It's a joy to be able to help lead such a caring and creative community.

colored pencil workshops

I teach a monthly colored pencil class at Hobby Lobby in Sedalia, MO - it's been exciting to see coloring concepts 'click' as students return to work and learn. I reserve a portion of the class for new instruction, warm ups or projects, and the rest of the time is dedicated to individual coaching as each student works on their own project.

video tutorials

My YouTube channel features a variety of instructional tutorials. I also publish a tutorial monthly for Splitcoaststampers. I have an online pencil course that needs an update, and hope to be able to work on that in the Fall.
