Hello there! I am looking forward to what will be my second-year teaching art at Riley Elementary. I am ecstatic to have the opportunity to create art with your child! I'm eager to getting to know all of my students, but here's a little about me:
I was born in Columbus, Nebraska, but have spent most of my life growing up in a small town called Shelby, Nebraska. I have had a passion for the arts ever since I could remember, and found my love for teaching just a little after! Thus, I decided, why don't I just combine my two biggest passions; art and teaching! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out via e-mail. I am anticipating another artisitically inspiring year!
I graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Nebraska, Lincoln in 2022, and am currently in my last semester of recieving my Master of Education from Doane University. I have previously taught at the Lux Center for the Arts, which includes educating art with private lessons, camps, and courses to all ages. I have been able to display my artwork within several galleries, including the Kiechel and the Eisentrager-Howard Gallery. I have participated in painting multiple murals, one in which is located in City Impact. Here, I was the chief artist that got to design the large mural and build community with the locals. There have also been multiple events where I have gotten to volunteer my time, one including the Columbus Nebraska Arts Council camps!
