“I’ve always had the “creative urge”. Color, is my passion. I enjoy experimenting with various, media. There are so many ways to make art. For me, painting, drawing and inventing art, is fun, but also serious business. I’ve taught art for many years, both in the public schools and private institutions. Observing the growth in my student’s work is so gratifying.”
