When the Arts programs started to disappear due to budget cuts, I volunteer taught Art at my son's elementary schools in Ventura and Santa Clarita. I also did Art projects, signs, and bulletin boards for school events. I've been an Assistant Boy Scout Leader and worked at the YMCA as a Counselor while attending college. I have taken classes in drawing, color and design in college and I am currently working on a Teaching Certificate in Early Childhood Education at Skyline College. My previous background included working as a Hairstylist and in the Medical field as a Senior Medical Secretary/Medical Assistant.
I love Art and Crafting. I draw, paint, make jewelry, mosaics, and I love trying new techniques and mediums. Working with Children is such a pleasure and I am constantly amazed by the Art that they create. I think that Art is a wonderful, life long creative outlet that brings so much joy and I'm honored to be able to share that with others.
