I never thought of myself as someone interested in art until my high school teacher encouraged me to take my work seriously. Among many other things, she taught me that everyone is an artist if you put in some time and patience! I spent more time drawing and painting in college, while also studying psychology and international studies. In addition to being a part of the awesome team at Paint Corner, I work at a youth program in the South End, where I am continually inspired by the creativity and energy of young people! I love teaching at Paint Corner because I learn something new about painting with every class!
