Art soothes my soul and refreshes my mind.
Depending on the day, I'm an artist first, teacher second or teacher first, artist second.
Hmmm, think my art experiences go back to playing in the mud at our cabin to making candles with my mom out in the garage on rainy days to painting on the easel in kindergarten (as I recall, I spent a lot of time at the easel) to trying almost any art or craft I could get my hands on. After graduating college and getting my first credential, I took a couple years off to get my Bachelor of Arts degree in Art Education. Just for me.

Blues and Greens of the Ocean
Earth Tones unless as they occur in nature, such as the California poppy or a tree trunk...
