I am an Art Educator at a private academy where I teach PreK-12th.
I specialize in drawing.

Above is a fun painting of my husband and I.
There is a purpose in the rope being tied loosely. The individual has the liberty to free themselves but remains enslaved by their own choice. Many times we know exactly what to do, but refuse to do just that. Sometimes we want freedom, but we use our liberty to remained chained to what we hate.
