I am a native Tri-Citian, (not many of us!), born in Richland raised in Kennewick. Now I live in Richland and work in Kennewick! Just like Wonder Woman ~ during the day, I am a mild mannered elementary school library teacher – best kept career secret in the world! I love the books and kids and adding a little art to enhance their experience with the story. After my own kids grew up, I went back to my art roots – crafting and I started coming to Paint Nites! One thing lead to another – now, I am on the other side of the paint brush! I am thrilled to encourage others as they discover their creativity!
