About the Artist:
I am one of four art teachers at Pemberton Township High School, my alma mater, in Burlington County, NJ. This is my 28th year of teaching, though I haven’t always been an art teacher. I began my career at the Burlington County Juvenile Detention Center. After two years, I became a middle school math and science teacher. Then for eight years I taught middle school English, literature, and social studies. I have been teaching art since 1998, all but one of those years at the high school level.
I have many interests including gardening, cooking, yard sales, yoga, seeing live music, and traveling. After being together for fourteen years, Joe and I got married last year and went on a “Rebirth of American and Canadian Cities Tour” for our honeymoon. We found great art, great food, and music in Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, Montreal, Cooperstown, and Camden. My philosophy is that wherever I find myself, I should make a difference for the greater good.
Making art is liberating. It frees the mind to explore and follow a path or forge in some new direction. As a sculptor I chose to explore the effects of art making and memory. Where do they intersect? How does engagement in making art forge a path to a memory? This journey will take me many places, some I will plan, but hopefully I will explore new territory, make interesting art, and help people along the way. Expect the unexpected.
