I believe making art is a huge part of my purpose in life. Creating art is more than just a job to me, it is my passion and an outlet for expressing my vast creative energy. I make art in many forms and mediums, such as paintings, drawings, logos, jewelry, planters, dreamcatchers, and more! As your instructor, my goal is simply to make memories with you to take home mentally and physically, through the fun process of painting.
