    Welcome 7th,8th, and 3-D art students!  Let me tell you a little about myself.  I was born in England, but my travels did not stop there.  I come from a military family, so yes, I'm a "Military Brat."  I have lived in places such as OK, RI, AL, and VA.  When coming to Va I went to High School in Fairfax County.  I started studying art and had the opportunity to experiment with many different types of mediums. With so many choices and ways to express myself in a visual way I decided to pursue being a professional artist.  In High school I attended a summer arts program call Fairfax Institute of the Arts.  The summer after that I attended a pre-college, Ringling School of the Arts in Sarasota, Florida. By my senior year in High School I knew I wanted to be an artist.  To go after my dreams I knew that I had to attend college, so I went to VCU (Virginia Commonwealth University).  I started off as a Photography and Film student, but after teaching at a child development center part time, I found that I loved enriching others with the love of art.  In the end, I had received a BFA in Photography and Film, another BFA in Art Education, and a MIS in Painting and Sculpture.  I also work as a fine artist on the side, occasionally display my work in galleries or in art competitions.  This is going to be a great year, I can smell creativity in the air!  Good luck and lets create some wild and crazy art!
