I am an educator and an artist. I am mostly self-taught. I am a wife and mom, and love traveling, eating, reading, drawing, and photography. I enjoy painting but not the mess that comes with it, so I've been navigating more towards digital art applications and techniques. I am a native Texas, but transplanted to Louisiana when I was married. I never knew people ate those crawfish that I played with as a child, until I moved to Louisiana. It took me a while to try it, but now I love it. I taught 9 years in a brick and mortar public school classroom, but now I am an ESL teacher working from home through VIPKID. I love it. It's fun to teach English to children in China. They are so cute! Working from home also gives me more time to make art, which I love. I never had time to create when I taught in the public school system. I'm so glad that I do now. Not only is creating art fun, it is also very therapeutic. There is not a person on this earth who could not benefit from the therapeutic effects that the Arts offer, whether, Music, Dance, Theatre, or the Visual Arts. So give one or more of them a try!
