About Me



My name is Mrs. Layla Maville! I was born and raised in Acton, Massachusetts where I earned a Bachelors of Fine Arts with a concentration in graphic design from the University of Massachusetts in Amherst and received a Masters from the School of The Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. I have a unique combination of talents and interests in the arts. I also have a background with children of all ages, strong multicultural art curriculum and special education. 

In 2007 I moved to Savannah, Georgia then relocated in January 2013 to Northern New York with my husband, Christopher. Yup, way up there near the Adirondacks and back to the snow but I'll also be able to enjoy my favorite season again - AUTUMN. I currently teach art to middle school students 6th-8th grade. 

On April 30th, 2015 our first child was born. Welcome Julia!
