Communicating through art allows me to know myself and reveal myself to others. I had always been drawn to art, and through various challenges in my life (double vision, severe to profound congenital hearing loss and a serious accident), I discovered that making art was very therapeutic. I have a Master of Art Education degree from Eastern Kentucky University and graduate certifications to teach deaf and hard of hearing students. I love to help others express themselves through art.
