I’m an artist working in mixed media collage and ceramics. I have kept highly illustrated and detailed sketchbooks and journals since 1986. My work is in the Rare book collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum. I have travelled to over thirty countries teaching English and making art. I have taught ESL in Chicago, Seoul, Naples, and London. I wish to share my art and experiences with you. I have taught all age levels for Surestart under fives as well as high school -Lake Forest Academy, Shamanic Art Forms at the Art Institute of Chicago, Sejong University in Seoul (English and Art) and Liceo Artistico in Naples. I can visit you at your home with materials. I’m especially good at pattern, colour, and line drawing. You can see some of my art @polarmermaid on instagram. I’m also a seasoned ESL teacher with 20 years’ experience in teaching grammar, composition, pheasant verbs, sentence structures, and expanding vocabulary.
