I had a 30 year career as an Office Assistant at McCain Correctional Hospital and retired in 2005. I began teaching art classes at Artist League of the Sandhills from 2005 until 2012. In the past six years I have been the art instructor for Parks and Recreation through Village of Pinehurst and I give art instruction to private students in my home studio. I enjoy teaching art to children and adults in all media and styles to include beginners through masters level. I believe it is important for every student to paint a subject that interests them. I give each student full instruction on how to create a good layout, begin the painting or drawing and instruction until it is completed. It is very rewarding to see immediate art growth in a student’s work in my classes.
