About Me


Hi,
   Welcome to my blog, glad ya stopped in!  
So a little about me... I teach Art at South Plaquemines High School in South Louisiana. It's my hometown and I love my little school.
      I have been so blessed to have a job where I get to do what I love every day. I have always been creative and loved to draw, doodle, paint, make crafts, work with clay, and now I get to inspire students to do the same.   I like a fun and bright classroom (in most cases there will be music involved) that motivates my students to think outside the box. I get to do this through teaching Art 1 &2, Pottery, and Fine Arts Survey.
     I enjoy a dabbling in quite a few different art mediums myself such as: photography, pen and ink, painting, color pencils, pastels, and I have a deep LOVE for Sharpies!! I also am a potter and love hand building and throwing on the wheel. Oh, and I can't forget that I also do some knitting, scrapbooking, altered book journaling, blogging, and jewelry making...I'm a girl of many hobbies. 
*My newest obsession is Pinterest!!!

ME IN A NUTSHELL:


my life is a lived one.
My relationship with God, family and friends are the most important part of what makes me, me.
Im either in the mountaintops or the valley.
I love the first day of school!
I like my closet organized by color.
I'm known to continue conversations out loud that was first started in my head.
I tend to be up when I should be asleep.
Sing and dance while in the shower.
I grew up a PK, enough said.
I'm all for bringing back nap time.
I look like I know what Im doing but half the time I don’t.
My friends say that my purse rivals that of Mary Poppin’s bag.
I love the smell of new Post-its
I'm under the belief that trees are really mans best friends
Me and my camera are out to see the world
I could watch Princess Bride everyday of the week.
I'm well known for random thoughts.
I would never classify myself as sophisticated, more like unique.
The smell of cut grass is a wonderful thing.
I love to go places I’ve never been.
I love that they pay me to play with art supplies everyday. 
Will hold a conversation with anyone and sometimes even people are not needed.
Cupcakes can fix anything!
I think there's nothing better than sand between my toes.
im a sucker for whimsical creatures.
I'm prone to talk too much, to be too loud, dream big, and carry large handbags :)


Right now my Favorite Quote is:


ABOVE ALL ELSE.
IT IS ABOUT LEAVING A MARK
THAT I EXISTED: I WAS HERE.
I WAS HAPPY. I WAS SAD.
I WAS IN LOVE. I WAS AFRAID.
I WAS HOPEFUL.
I HAD AN IDEA AND I HAD A PURPOSE.
THAT’S WHY I MADE WORKS OF ART.
