Favorite Quotes:

“I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for.” ~ Georgia O’Keefe

“Every child is an artist.  The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. ~ Pablo Picasso

About me:

I am married and have two daughters, one  at CU Boulder the other is in 11th grade.

I enjoy camping, skiing, gardening, hiking and making art.

I coached Odyssey of the Mind for 5 years and Destination Imagination for 2 years prior to that.  I coached two teams during two of those years.  The two OotM teams I coached went on to compete at World Finals three times and two times.

I completed 15 years of volunteering for the National Sports Center for the Disabled in 2011.

I’ve hiked the Grand Canyon three times, once from the North Rim to the South Rim , and once from the South Rim to Plateau Point and back up and once down to the first water station and back up.

I spent a summer in Europe living out of a backpack.  I traveled from London to Istanbul while studying art history and European history.

I LOVE teaching art!
