I founded the Art Table Studio in 2013 because I wanted children and adults, basically the whole community to have a creative hub where they could create works of art and be inspired by others from world communities. I truly believe that we are all connected!
New York City is home, however I am originally from Asheville, NC. I am a mom, artist educator, trainer, creative, nature + people-lover, sun-hippie, ice-cream fanatic and lover all things art + community!
I have an MAT in Art Education from the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore, MD + BA in Studio Art and Art History from Spelman College in Atlanta, GA. To date, I've worked with children-seniors in psychiatric hospitals to creating + developing art programs for charter schools (Center City Public Schools, DC Prep and adjudicated youth correctional-turned-therapeutic facilities - Maya Angelou Academy/See Forever Foundation) in Washington, DC.
Professionally, for 10 years, my 9-5, have been as a Global Interactive Developer and Instructional Designer for People Leaders in Enterprise Learning and Development. Some of my client include:
- New York City Department of Education
- American Express Global Business Travel
- New York City School Construction Authority.
As an educator + advocate for the Arts, I am most interested in working with educators who are progressive in strategies and holistic in their approach to education with cross-cultural reach.
