About Esther

I am a full-time teaching artist at Alphonsus Academy and Center for the Arts, where I strive to inspire a love of art and artmaking in children from ages 3 to 14. I have been teaching art in the Archdiocese of Chicago for the past twelve years, and completed a Master's degree in Art Education in 2013.

While I love painting alone in my studio, I also love the challenge and the excitement of teaching elementary school. It's a deeply fulfilling profession and I've found that it has made me a better, more thoughtful artist.
