As a mom of two little girls and a pup life is busy. Art has always been my escape from reality, a time I can just zone out and create. I learned this was my passion at an early age and set out to become an art teacher, the dream was to be in art class all day! I received a Bachelors of Art in Studio Art and K-12 Art Education from Saint Mary’s College, Notre Dame, IN in 2010; and was a full time Elementary Art Teacher in Pasco County for 7 years. When my first daughter was born I was promoted to a SAHM. Not fully willing to give up my teacher or artist hat, I continue to paint with my PWAT family and have been between our three studios since 2013. Paint your Pet is by far my favorite of our many amazing classes. If you too are looking to escape from reality for a few hours and or paint your fur baby, come hang sometime, our doors are always open, unless we are closed.
