I have beginning and advanced lessons to learn the technique and composition to create watercolor, drawing, collage, painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, pottery, any and all art forms! Drawing is where it all began with me when I was in junior high. My high school art teacher made us turn our work on the wall which was intimidating at that age... I've been having art shows ever since! Photography has been a passion with me since I was a child. My brother is a professional photographer and an inspiration. Printmaking was my major within my Art Studio degree from Chico State and has been my art form of choice for over 20 years. I received my single subject teaching credential in Art at San Francisco State and became a member of The Graphic Arts Workshop, a printmaking cooperative. I taught Art and Photography at the high school level, with a wet darkroom and digital darkroom using Photoshop for 10 years and loved it. My little girl came along and I chose her instead of my job, crazy in this economy, but not in the scope of life.
