I am a printmaker and ceramicist I want to teach everyone a skill that they might use to create works in their own style.  I have two degrees from the Art Institute of Dallas, one degree from Brookhaven College, and two BFA’s from the University of North Texas.  I have also spent 15 years as a commercial artist and 16 years with the United States Navy Reserve. After 7 years of teaching middle school and high school I am hoping to continue to build my craft while passing on my love for art.
