I am a special education teacher in Indianapolis, Indiana. I have taught in the Indianapolis area for approximately five years, and I have found my passion working with students who have Autism. With the encouragement of my dear husband and family members, I have thrived in my job as a special education teacher.
I have always enjoyed writing for both enjoyment and for professional purposes. It is a passion of mine to teach others how to use proper grammar and write in a way that expresses my ability to communicate effectively with other people. I began writing poetry when I was about 10 years old, and I continue to write poetry and lyrics to this day. I have been published for my poetry.
Music is another passion of mine. I have played the classical viola for about 15 years, and I have sung an alto part in many capacities, including church choir and praise team. I have enjoyed singing solos with my guitar in hand at many church events. I write my own music and lyrics, as well. If I had the ability, I would record my own music and put out my own CD in the singer/songwriter genre.
Finally, I am an abstract artist that is self-taught. By utilizing newspaper print, tissue paper, buttons, vintage book illustrations, etc., I create unique pieces of 3D abstract art. I also use a variety of techniques to create my art, such as adding texture and using different brushes to make the piece of art one-of-a-kind.
