Mrs. Graves

Hello my most amazing artists! How are you today? Ready to create?!

My name is Mrs. Graves and it is my pleasure to teach art at Avondale Elementary School. I grew up in Atlanta and attended Georgia State University where I received a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Drawing, Painting and Printmaking. Along with working as a freelance artist, I served as a nanny for 12 years. In 2015 my family moved to Birmingham for my husband's job. I joined the Birmingham City School system in 2018, teaching at Putnam Middle School. This past summer I started working towards my masters degree in art education at UAB. I am thrilled to teach elementary students at Avondale!

I enjoy spending time with my husband Zack, son August “Gus”, brother Alex aka Pokemon, and dog Annie. In my spare time, I paint portraits!
