  • My Story

    Having a life-long interest in art, it was no surprise when I decided to pursue a career in art. However, while I was in school for my undergraduate degree, the Lord surprised me by igniting a desire to teach art and help shape the next generation of artists. I went on to finish my BA degree, worked in the industry for a little while, and then obtained my MFA. The Lord timed everything perfectly, leading me to NGU, where I am able to do what I love – teach art and guide students, all while reflecting the love of Christ.
