A little bit of background on me…
I’m a ripe 34 y/o artist who is always on the move and in constant search of the next thing to dive into. I am a mother of two boys who make me proud and grateful everyday. I have a degree in Media Arts and Animation from the Art Institute of Philadelphia where I studied 2D/3D Cartooning/Animation, Character Development & Design and other various art subjects. My hard-work and dedication awarded me graduation with Honors and recipient of the Best of Quarter Award.
Currently I’m a Web & Graphics Designer/Developer in Mt. Laurel NJ and have many years experience in a broad range of Design fields. I have been involved in a number of non-profit organizations such as; MicroSociety, UNICO, Time for Teens, FSKN(Families of Special needs) It’s Our Turn Community Health Center, and more. Please browse through my Gallery to see some past works including some mural artwork I created for a local Pediatrics’s office.
So how did you get into this you say?
As a mom of two, my girlfriends and I always make it a point (at least once a month) to get out for girls night. We’ve done bowling, karaoke, local bars, designer purse bingo, you name it. Most recently we thought about the idea of a paint night. Well these seem to be all the rage these days but in doing some research I found that not only can the tickets be costly without tracking down coupons, but you are paying for parking and gas in most cases (if you are like me and live in suburbia)…and who wants to pay for food and drink so far from home? The point is to have a nice relaxing time with your friends to socialize and do something interesting. Not put a cap on the amount you drink with concerns about time-slots, commute and traffic.
So I said to myself…
“Hey I love to paint… and hell I can teach simple techniques for fun to some girls/ladies/women. Who knows, I would even enjoy giving classes to children. I can provide an instructional, yet fun “girls night” all in the convenience of ones home, at a cost much less that a group of gals can even make a monthly event!”
