About Celia

Through out my 20 year professional career in Fashion apparel, Product development, Home Decor and Styling I have taught, tutored and mentored students of all ages in Art, Fashion Design/ Sewing and Crocheting.

There is nothing like teaching a student and watching them embrace the creative process in a safe and fun enviroment where there is no right or wrong. There is just the process of learning, creating and letting the project evolve. Through this process the students will grow confident within themselves to achieve their goals and feel empowered to take on their next projects. This act of paying forward what I have learn to others has enriched my life. I look forward to teaching students that are eager to enhance their skills, get support in their school art projects, learn a new hobby or create art that will help them destress and enrich their lives.

I studied calligraphy in college and loved the art of handwriting. Practice makes perfect when it comes to handwriting. I have witnessed schools no longer teaching script in their curriculum. Through practice sheets and lessons the students will learn how to hold a pencil or pen correctly and achieve great handwriting skills.

I studied Fashion Design at FIT in NYC where I learned pattern making and sewing. With this knowledge I have honed my skills and have created lesson plans for teens and adults to learn how to sew and design clothing, tote bags and home accessories in a fun creative way. Crocheting has also been a passion of mine since my grandmother taught me when I was 10. I continue to study and learn new needlework crocheting stitches to enhance my skills. I have incorporated and taught these techniques in my workshops.

I am a Fine Artist with Art work in Galleries in Toronto, Canada and NJ since 2014- present. My medium is acrylic and I am an abstract expressionist artist. I have studied and specialize in acrylic, watercolors, pastels, charcoal and pencil. I have a degree in illustration/Fine Art from Newark School of Fine and Industrial Arts.

My approach is creative and fun. I received 3 write ups in the Montclair Times community section and collaborated with Bobby Brown Studio to do a Fall fashion show to show the students designs.
