"My degree, from the University of Maryland, is in Art Education, and I have taken master's level courses from the Maryland Art Institute in Baltimore. I taught art for four years at the middle school level, and taught courses in drawing and painting for the recreation department. I worked as a free lance graphic artist for several years in Asheville, NC. I currently have a studio in Fort Mill SC where I show my work and teach classes. I also provide graphic and website design to other creative small businesses."
