Art teacher, supply hoarder, and Artist / Crafter

I graduated college in 1989 with a degree in Art Education.  Since that time I have taught art in schools, and in private/ group lessons to both children and adults. I love creating something new and teaching others to do it.  I was a digital scrapbook designer from 2008-2010 and loved it.  (Hopefully, I can do that again someday! I designed under the name of Tootlebugz.) In my free time I love to experiment with new media, paint and work with clay. I am also a craft / art supply hoarder and own the materials to do almost anything you can imagine! My dream is to have a beautiful, inspiring studio where I can teach and create all day!
