|My Occupation||Artist, Calligrapher, Teacher|
Bringing beauty to birth is what my life is all about. I have a doctorate from Carnegie-Mellon University in Art Education. My body of creativity includes paintings, murals, stained glass windows, photographs, graphic designs, books,calligraphic and digital art. I have taught art and photography all of my adult life--from kindergarten through college. Sharing my knowledge of creative thinking, color and composition skills is my everyday challenge and pleasure in the classroom. I teach digital photography & graphic design at Rock Canyon High in
I have written a high school/college art textbook and a hand-lettered book on Love, based on my Florida beachside meditations. Several of my calligraphic works are original inspirational thoughts. I also create motivational posters for teens.
Telling original bedtime stories to my grandchild, Lilah, gives me quite a repertoire for more children's books. I'm hoping my young illustrator will add her creative drawings to them.
|Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...|
|understanding toddler art. I have wanted to do that since my adult children did their first scribbles. My inventory of children's art is huge. There are specific levels that toddlers pass through on their creative adventures. I will be showing parents and teachers what preschoolers' art means, and how to encourage their creativity. Throw away the coloring books!|
|Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...|
|We need lots of quiet time; our right brains are constantly cooking up new stuff. I have always said that 24 hours a day was not enough to create everything I had in my mind. Creativity flows like a river from my brain. Now that I'm in the mature phase of my life, I can easily translate all the art and composition skills into finished work. "The reality within creates the reality without."|
|This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)|
|NO! This book is for children who delight in colorful personalities. Lulu the Lizard teaches little ones to be happy with themselves, as they are.|
