About me

Hello and welcome to art! I'm Mrs. Powell, and I live in Asheville, with my husband and our many pets.  We have 2 dogs (Quigley Wagmire and Indiana Bones), 2 cats (Evie and Catsby), and 9 chickens!

I was lucky to grow up here in Buncombe County Schools.  I graduated from NBHS in 2006, and earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts from UNC-Asheville in 2011.  After several exciting years working in after school and summer camp programs, I found my way into back into the school system as a Title I Paraprofessional at NBES.  My time there solidified my passion and drive to work in education, and I went back to UNCA to earn my teaching certification as a K-12 Art Teacher. 

I have been teaching since 2015, and have worked with students of every age from Pre-K to 12th grade! I hold a BFA in oil painting, with additional coursework in ceramics, photography, drawing, and printmaking. I am passionate about multidisciplinary learning and technological integration.   I love reading, gardening, and of course creating art!
