The Story Behind InLoveWithArt
Growing up I was constantly drawing, painting, and creating anything and everything I could. I loved making art, figuring out how to put things together, and building with my hands. When I went to college, I realized I was happiest when I was creating. I wanted to share this love of art with my own students one day. Inspired by my parents who were both school teachers, my journey into becoming an art teacher began.
I started designing jewelry and opened InLoveWithArt in 2008 shortly after graduating from Penn State University with a bachelor’s degree in Art Education. In 2009 I became a full-time Visual Arts teacher. For the next few years, my business grew and I would squeeze in as much jewelry making as possible in the evenings, on the weekends, and through the summer when I wasn’t teaching art. Life was definitely busy, but having my own creative outlet fueled my enthusiasm about art and made me a better teacher.
In 2014 my beautiful son Theo was born. Between taking care of an infant and teaching full time, I needed to take a break and close my shop while I focused on being a mom and a teacher. I have recently been given the wonderful opportunity to cut back my teaching hours and to teach part part time and be at home with my son on my days off. Now I squeeze in as much jewelry making as I can during nap time, after bedtime, and on the weekends. I am so excited to be able to reopen InLoveWithArt while still being a Visual Arts teacher who is hopefully teaching her students to be in love with art too.
