Hi there, CRUSHERS! I am so happy that you are here with us and I cannot wait to CRUSH IT with you! I am a former Art Educator for Norfolk Public Schools, specialized in drawing and painting. I am super passionate about sharing the joyous world of Art with all of YOU amazing humans. After leaving my teaching job in June of 2021 and being a stay at home mom for 2 years, I was desperate to continue sharing my love for the Arts, so I began teaching solo Paint Night classes in November of 2022. During this time, I realized that there was a dire need amongst the community for more safe, creative spaces where people can express themselves and connect with one another, which is how Crush It On Canvas came to life.
