Hello! I am one of the Visual Arts Specialists at Gateway STEM High School. This is my 17th year teaching in the district and my 5th year teaching art at Gateway STEM High School. My art background spans from earning a Bachelor's Degree at Columbia College in Chicago and a Master of Fine Arts in Studio Arts at the School of Visual Arts in New York. I specialize in Drawing, Painting and Digital art when I create my own artwork. Currently, students can enroll in Introduction to Art, Drawing and Painting, and AP Studio Arts (in that order). My goal is to help students appreciate the arts in Introduction to Art, or discover if they want to pursue art in the future. I am looking forward to the 2019-2020 school year.
