About the Artists
Hello! I am from Brisbane, Australia, but have lived in Austin since 1997. I have been a full-time artist for almost 10 years. In recent years, I have been working on community-based art projects with both children and adults. Check out my Projects page for more details. I enjoy the process of community art, making art together and learning from each other! Sarah and I are looking forward to hosting these workshops for your artist!
Hi friends! I am Austin native with an 8 year old son at Travis Heights Elementary School. I'm a painter with a BFA from the University of North Carolina Greensboro and have a background in Early Childhood Education. I am passionate about kids experiencing "the zone," that awesome art making space where they get to be creative and relaxed. I'm so excited to hang with your kiddos in the Enchanted Forest aka Melissa and Ethan's house! Send em over for a special summer day with us.
