About the Artist

From a young age, I've always been interested in creating. I started taking private art lessons at the age of 9 from Donald Blanton at the Distinctive Art Studio in Springfield, MA. I continued with them all the way through high school until I went to study Studio Art at UMass Amherst. From my studies in all mediums (ceramics, photography, sculpture, painting, printmaking etc.) along with being the Art Director of St. Vartan Camp for a few consecutive summers, I grew a passion for teaching. I changed my major to Art Education specifically, and graduated in May 2020 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art Education, soon after becoming a licensed Massachusetts educator. I started working in the Springfield Public Schools District as the Art Teacher of two elementary schools- Brightwood and Freedman. I have been full-time at Brightwood for 4 years with my own classroom and brand new building facilities as of 2021. I love the community in which I teach.

It has been a passion of mine to give a voice to the voiceless, spread awareness and use my talent for the greater good of humanity. One of my biggest passions and one of the greatest gifts that Art has given me is seeing the love and light that exists all around us every single day.
