I have been teaching at Pella High School since 2001. I teach the art studio classes that are offered. Drawing and painting are my two favorite art forms, but I also enjoy ceramics, sculpture and some traditional fine art crafts like book binding. I worked as a professional stained glass artist before I came to Pella High- and adore that medium as well. My husband Derek is a band director here in the district and we have two children, Jack and Rachael.
