Bio: 
I am a professional artist and have experience creating visual art and public art and illustrating children's books and editorial illustration. I have taught at University level illustration and graphic design courses. I am a certified Hatha yoga teacher and taught for 4 years to adults. I am a teacher, a wife, and a mother to 3 children (Boy/Girl twins age 11 and Boy age 12). I practice yoga and meditation on a daily basis. I encourage love, inspiration and compassion as a way of life.
Volunteering Experience: 
I have volunteered at my kids' school classrooms guiding them in art activities and reading to them. I especially enjoy reading to/with children. I have created and shared with them projects such as "how to illustrate a children's book" and "how to make a handmade accordion book" for ages 8-12. Raising children has given me a broader ability to understand and help other children. I have lived in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico many times over the last 20 years, sometimes 1 month to 2 years at a time. I haven't been there since 2000 and would like to revisit for the summer 2016 with my 3 children who are ages 11 and 12. They speak spanish too as they have been enrolled in a spanish immersion school here in the US since kindergarden. I'd like to find a place in SMA that we could volunteer together, perhaps an orphanage or someplace where we could work with children in San Miguel de Allende, MX.
