MY ARTIST'S STORY

SOME OF MY RECENT ART

Art is my career and my calling.

It is what calms me down, brings me into an inspirational zone and satisfies me.

I enjoy the process of creating, exploring different materials and techniques but most of all I am delighted with the realization of the finished product.

Through the years I have studied degrees, attended courses and put students through academic art studies. Recently I discovered the enjoyment of teaching younger kids as well as elderly artists. I love their enthusiasm and buoyancy.

I embrace different cultures and generations.

I founded Celestial Art Studio when I decided to retire from full time teaching. Here we practice art, have fun, laugh a lot and become a family.
