All you need to paint are a few tools, a little instruction and a vision in your mind

I have been teaching art for 7 years. Prior to this, I was a Program Director for a local art studio and a curriculum creator for an international kids organization. I am passionate about art education and believe strongly in teaching both children and adults the skills that can enable them to draw and paint realistically. I hold a MA in Art education and a BFA in Visual and Performing Arts. Besides creating art and teaching art, I enjoy visiting museums. I love traveling abroad and photographing the sites. I am an active person, hiking with my pups, paddle boarding, without my pups, or just going to the gym. I also enjoy being a spectator to my favorite sports and teams which leads me to my favorite quote, by the great NC State Basketball coach, Jimmy V “Don’t give up. Don’t ever give up.”

I learned that who doesn’t look for you, doesn’t miss you and who doesn’t miss you doesn’t care for you… that destiny determines who enters your life but you decide who stays… that the truth hurts only once and a lie every time you remember it. There are three things in life that leave and never return: words, time and opportunities… therefore, value whoever values you and don’t treat as a priority whoever treats you as an option.

She was asked why she never had plastic surgery. She said why? This is me! She said I’ve had friends that have had it and they come out looking like a Picasso painting! She is like my 97 year old mother and carries a flip phone. Way to go mama and Iris!

It would be a dream to have coffee al fresco with Iris and just chat. I wouldn't even mind if Uriah joined us!

This just made my day. I'm certainly going to start saying vintage instead of age.
