My love for art began at a very early age when I first realized I could draw. Creating art was my escape and I loved knowing that I could express such deep parts of myself without words. I find creating art is a transformative experience that has no end. When I was young I knew I wanted to be able to share my experience with others by teaching art. I wanted to teach people that we are all capable of creating art. I now work as an art educator for the Glendale Elementary school district. Teaching and creating art are two of my greatest passions!
Working with Vino and Canvas is so much fun because I get to see people who haven’t picked up a paint brush in years, create a beautiful work of art in two hours. The pressures of being an “artist” are pulled away with our step-by-step instructions. Many of our clients are stunned time and time again with their finished product and I hear all too often “I never thought I could have painted this.” Vino and Canvas has given me the opportunity to share my love and passion for art with others and it brings me all sorts of happiness!
