Welcome to the Dolphin's Art Page!
First off, I am so excited to get to share my love of art with all of our wonderful students here at Southport Elementary!
A little about Mrs. B - The Art Teacher
Art has always been an important part of my life and something that I share with my family and friends. I studied art throughout high school - ceramics, photography, drawing, stained glass, jewelry making and more. I continued my art studies at the College of Charleston in Charleston, SC with a focus on photography, painting and sculpture. I love art so much that I went back to school at Coastal Carolina in Conway, SC (close to Myrtle Beach) where I received my Masters Degree so that I could teach art (certified K-12). I moved here to North Carolina in 2011 and I finally feel like I have found my home!
A little about Mrs. B - The Artist
Not only do I love to teach, but I also continue to create my own works of art outside of school. In my free time I really enjoy painting, drawing and building things with my hands! Last summer I painted some surfboards for my close friends' wedding! Click on the wedding surfboards link below to take a look! Currently I am working on a large scale painting for my brother and sister-in-law, to put in their new house! You can take a look at the work in progress by clicking the link below!
