I've been loving art since I was in the 4th grade. It all started with a Learn to Draw book by Jon Gnagy. and an art kit. Soon I was begging for art lessons. From there it never stopped. Now, I have my own art studio in a fledgling art community I am proud to call home. As the president of the new 1823 Artisan Guild, it is my goal to bring local artisans together to create something that wasn't here when I was searching for art experiences as a new student.
