I just started painting in 2010 after my brother (who was an artist) passed away. I have never taken an art class, but recently have made a friend at my school that is an art teacher and she has been helping me. I am very open to comments and suggestions. I want to learn and grow as an artist. I am enjoying trying different things and trying to figure out where my creative passions lie. My friend says I am a true oxy-moron because I am a Science teacher, Coach and I LOVE ART!
