I am a professional illustrator and self published comic book creator. I have published thirteen individual comic books, and have just completed one full graphic novel. I was a fourth grade teacher for eleven years. I currently teach art classes to children at the Columbia Museum of Art in Columbia, South Carolina. My published comic series include "The Adventures of Death Elf and Woose," "Creepy Cat," and "Kitten the Barbarian."

7 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Please be sure all manga, comics, and graphic novels are school appropriate for young audiences. I cannot allow any content with nudity, violence, profanity, or adult content into the classroom. If your learner would like to share his or her favorite comic book, and there are questions regarding the content, feel free to contact me. I am happy to preview any book at least 48 hours in advance of the class. 

I often share my authored works in the classroom. You can preview my published titles online, and I am happy to direct you to them by request. I read these comics to my fourth graders while teaching in the public school system.
