I was born in El Paso,Texas where I was surrounded by creative people. When I was around 6 years old, my family moved to Southern California. I found my love of art through the many cultures and people that surrounded my life. I have always been fascinated by the human face. To me capturing the soul through the eyes told the whole story. I am a self taught artist, taking classes where every and when ever I could afford them. When the internet was introduced to me I would and still do, spend hours looking and searching for art work that appealed to me. This is also where I found the courage to put my art out to the masses.
I teach art to children through a program called Young Rembrandts. I especially like teaching children with Autism. These children can let go and be creative using pencils and markers. I am always amazed of their work. I feel that we all have a voice and art reaches the depth of the heart and soul especially in children.
I was always taught from my family that if you don't share your talent then you haven't reached your true potential.ition that I can could also be used in art Jiewlerys
