I liked having boundaries to break when I started exploring my artistic talent. I firmly believe all artists need the basics to grow from and I tell my students that. So many think more is more, or I'm an artist I can ignore you and break all the rules. Well, yes, artists should break the rules, but they need to understand them first to break them better. Picasso broke all the rules, but he learned them first.
I become a better artist every day I nurture young artists. I'm lucky that way.

|This is my example for a marker project. The kids drew trees on|
half a piece of paper then colored them with markers.
I sprayed it with water and folded it in half,
making the reflection. so cool.
