Here's a little history about me, a short story of my childhood, and projects that I am currently working on.

Associate Degree Registered Optician R.O.
I would like to share some of my, "art" experiences with you. I've always been a creative person. I suppose today people would label me a, "creative." I like this term. When I was young, I was always fascinated by art and can vividly remember my first, "real look" at a painting that was on display in the elementary school library. I was mesmerized by a painting of a single flower. I noticed when I stood close to it, the flower turned into globs of paint, and when I stepped away from it, colors were transformed into a flower. I even recall saying out loud, "I want to paint like that!" I've had the, "art bug" ever since.
Later, in the same school year, I created a large paper mache spider that was chosen as a display prop at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington D.C. My spider became, "Charlotte" in the Charlotte's Web display there. Many artsy projects have come and gone since then. In fact, I've had a lifetime of them.
After several years working and teaching as a potter, I became interested in writing and illustrating books. My most recent project, Visual Verbiage, was just released in November 2018 and offers a Structured Literacy approach to learning. This integrates a visual, hands-on, and audible way to engage in the memorization of vocabulary words. It is also a personal account of my struggle to learn vocabulary words. Please join me for an author talk/ book signing/ and mini-workshop that showcase the book. You can find out where I'll be next by pressing the Blog tab.
My book, Noonie Pie's Snap-It-Series- Mountain Adventure was birthed several years ago and remains an ongoing literacy program that I'm creating and shaping. Although it is a work in progress, it shows great promise as an integrated literacy program that is geared toward first grade students.
Another project I've been involved with has been learning Scripture visually through the Visual Bible Memory (VBM) book series. As you can tell, I enjoy creating a good, "series" of books that one can saturate themselves in. Visual Bible Memory has been one of the best projects I've ever worked on. It has opened some other creative doors such as Scripture Painting classes and community painting events that I currently instruct a few times per year.
I'm thankful for such a great start with the Visual Verbiage book series and I'm hopeful that many more great starts will follow. God's love and blessings to all of you. Thanks for allowing me some time to talk a little about myself and thank you for sharing your ideas and, "works of art" on my web page. You're a blessing!
