creator of children's comics


Teaching students to make art a habit

I'm a comic artist and freelance illustrator drawing and teaching in Destrehan, LA. I have an MFA in Sequential Art, and have been creating comics for 20 years. I've taught at colleges, community colleges, libraries, schools, conventions, art supply stores, home schools, and private art co-ops. So you know I've taught all different age groups, but teenagers are my favorite because they're just developing their unique voice as an artist.

My lessons are designed to be fun, build confidence, and teach the technical skills: composition, draftsmanship, color theory, and storytelling. I demonstrate to my students that through guided practice, anyone can draw! I plan my own lessons and produce all of the examples, demonstrations, and take-aways myself. Everything is catered to my teaching style and audience.
