I am an artist, I work mostly with oil and acrylic paint. I've shown in various small shows by different community based galleries. My work is very family oriented. Most of my work consist of family portraits but in absurd ways. I paint the people around me that I feel a great connection with. I like to include different elements to the painting that oppose to that person's natural habitat.
My influences are Henri de Toulouse-Laurtec, David Salle, and Georgia O'Keeffe.
Why I wanted to become an art teacher?
Takes a village to raise a child
I believe having a support system is most important for any child. I strongly believe that every parent should be involved in their child's academics and hobbies. It does incredible things for a child to know that their parent is there to help when they need it. When he or she knows you are present, they will try their hardest to make you proud. Helping with homework, reading a book with them or even just posting their artwork will affect your child in many great ways. I wouldn't be the person I am today without my village.
