I am a writer, an artist, and a creator. Over the years, I have worked on numerous projects from afghans to watercolor paintings. I have taught art classes for students from 4 to 15 years-old, training students in watercolors, charcoal sketches, and oil pastels among other techniques. My favorite handcrafts include crocheting and knitting, using a wide variety of threads and yarns, but I also enjoy embroidery, cross-stitch, and the more obscure crafts such as tatting and hardanger. For me, the best part of my hobbies is when I learn something new and can pass it on to someone else.
