My Name is Dr. Elia H. I have a bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in art from California State University, Northridge and Ph. D. in Post Secondary and Adult Education from Capella University, Minnesota. Presently, I am a Doctoral Mentor in Higher Education, at Capella University. I have spent 11 years working in various positions in continuing higher education community: I taught History of American Education, History of Art (Pre-history to Gothic and from Gothic to present), Art Appreciation, Drawing, Animation, Design Concepts, and Color Theory.
I believe that education in general is a course of action that generates achievements or failures, and that each experience changes us.
When I am not teaching for any University, I paint California landscapes, seascapes, missions, and portraits of individuals with unique facial expressions.
Presently, I live in Glendale California. I have a supportive family, which consists of five children.
