As a child I was always fascinated with the Arts. As an Art Educator my goal is to inspire my students. I believe Art stimulates their imagination and develops their self- esteem. As an artist and fashion designer I want to encourage my students to explore the different types of Art, techniques, and processes and make their individual discoveries. I have my own fashion line and online boutique called"Amore Couture". I specialize in custom women's apparel but also have a unisex line of custom hats and acessories. Several of my pieces have been worn by celebrities on television and music videos. I am also a dog lover, which has inspired me to come up with a Pet Apparel line called "Amore Doggie Couture" With all this being said my passion is Art, being creative and teaching my students that there is no exact way to create art. I strive to instill in my students that art is personal as well as an individual expression. I want my students to explore their uniqueness and understand that Art is an excellent way to express their emotions.
