I AM ART! (straight to the point) Art is life and sharing this process with others, creates an inspiring "quality" of living!
I am an experienced mixed- media artist and a professional instructor from Los Angeles, California.
Visual art has in the past and continues to play an important role in my life. Both intellectually and spiritually! As an artist; it is my passion to work with a variety of mediums, discover new techniques, have the willingness to be creative, and the inspiration to grow as an artist.
My artist philosophy is, anyone can be an artist! Through practice, motivation, and a passion to be creative; one can develop strong artistic skills.

I have a real passion to "create"!
I choose to be playful in my art studio, get messy with paint, cut, staple, sew, or glue just about anything I can get my hands on and explore all the possibilities. I love to make "artsy" things out of recycled materials or give life to worn-unwanted objects. Everything artful has a place, meaning, and deserves to be displayed for all to admire!
I love to create, collect, and swap ATC's, Altered Rolodex Cards, crafts... just about anything!
