I am excited to be the new art teacher at Westgate! Art class was always an escape for me during school. It is a class that should allow students to feel comfortable and not be afraid to express themselves through art. I hope to create a fun and safe environment for the students to come and enjoy art! I intend to let creativity shine and grow by having students participate in projects that incorporate elements and principles of art and design. They will learn aspects of art history and how it pertains to art in the present day.
During my free time I spend time with my husband, our dogs and my family. My husband and I enjoy snowboarding, hiking and backpacking. We also love to travel and see live music. When I have the time I like to create abstract, colorful paintings using watercolors.
