I also intend to continue to teach art and crafts classes.

I've always dabbled with arts and crafts throughout my life, however my educational background is a Bachelors degree in Music and BA in Art from San Francisco State University. I have worked in several mediums which include: graphite, ink, water color, acrylic paint, oil paint, charcoal, dry pastels, ceramics, paper-mache, jewelry design, knitting, and crocheting.
