I began creating art at a very early age and never stopped. I have taught numerous art classes throughout Southern California consisting of painting, mixed media art, collage art, sewing, jewelry making, and everything in between. I also enjoy being a student and have taken dozens of courses throughout the years.
I also volunteer at local schools via art teacher-friends who love bringing in speakers and demonstrators.
I am a published artist in over 20 prestigious magazines and books where I have shared detailed step-by-step instructions/how-to as well as beautiful visuals of my art.
I also ran my own very successful children’s birthday party business in the San Francisco Bay Area for four very strong years during the 90's. I taught them craft activities, we played a game that I designed and provided face painting. I spent every weekend with kids from all demographics (ages 3-12) over the entire Bay Area.
I love teaching through demonstration and working right alongside the child in an enthusiastic manner. Bringing out the artist in every child is my goal. Allowing them to make their own artful decisions during the process is what I encourage.
I can assist in helping bring out their creativity through painting, collaging, and doodling, while helping them depict their own beautiful visual story. We will utilize canvas, wallpaper or a drawing pad for the base of the project, and then incorporate paint with whimsical, positive photos and images, collage elements, markers and crayons.
Let me help enrich your child's life through art!
