Majoring in illustration. That takes me to painting several large format outdoor and indoor murals for public and private avenues. Moving on to other mediums such as stained -glass and glass - mosaic murals. I’ve always loved learning different techniques in art. I started teaching in art centers and for private individuals. I enjoy teaching others what I have learned and love to see your process and progress as you learn. I recently illustrated a children’s book , it was a pleasure and a new learning experience"
