As an artist-in-residence at The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust I teach and perform for a variety of programs since, 2011.
For three years I have been the lead educator contributing original puppetry, performances, curriculum, book choices, professional development workshops, outreach and teaching to Buzzword Pgh.
We made this small installation out of plastic bottles transformed into flowers in my favorite camp, Green Artists and Writers. Co-created with a dear friend and excellent teacher, Julie Albright. This is her website, The Writing Studio.

I taught at Propel East in Turtle Creek for the past 8 years. (Part of the Propel Schools charter school system) We called our art classroom Studio 101. We have a blog about it here. (blog is not updated but still gives a great look at the type of art we create and the great students and events we celebrate!) And you can see a lot of our art on www.artsonia.com in the Propel East gallery.
I am also a certified yoga instructor and I see private clients in my home studio.
