About Me

Hello all,

I am a pediatric occupation therapist by day working with special needs students from 3 years old to 22 in public school, and an art teacher by night working with adults teaching mosaics, stained glass, paper crafting, mixed media, and fusion glass.

If I am not participating in ocean related activities on my time off I am making something. I am always incorporating art in student activities. I really love functional art.

I loved making my car seat covers in beachy hibiscus, flip flop, boat drink fabric. I also recently made my first quilt. I had to pick the wave and make it like a scallop or like the scales on a mermaid's tail which is what I call it....Mermaid's tale. Wow, not one I would recommend for a beginner. Right now I am working on an outside concrete sea turtle chess board table. I have my friends mosaic one of the squares whenever they come to visit so they will always be part of it. I am having fun making art dolls lately. One of my most favorite pieces of art that I have made is my sea turtle manatee hanging lamp. It is 51 inches long and over my snack bar

I am the luckiest person, living in paradise with my hubby. I also have two adult boy.

Comment: Paula.... I LOVE the block you sent! I like to make the blocks with batting too..... I've made them with polyfill but I prefer the batting.... Thanks for the extra "in progress" block you sent too!
Response: Glad you were happy. I love Teesha Moore, and I love working on her inspired art. She recently had a stroke, and I was so sad for her, but I heard from her husband she is staying positive and working hard in recovery.
