What is something you’d like to do in the future?
Continue teaching art, develop painting skills, and go deeper into both fibers and book arts; I’d also like to visit Australia, Greece, and Ireland.

What is something you’re grateful for, appreciate, encouraged by, or excited about?
Enthusiastic, creative students – they’re the best! And God, who really is the master creator.

Personal notes:
I love spending time with my family, and like to cook for special events.

What kind of art do you do?
Fibers, book arts, and sculpture, mostly, but I also play with drawing, pastels. I would like to pursue painting; installations also interest me.
