About the Artists
Wow, it is so hard to write about myself, but here goes... I have always loved art, attended the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and graduated from NIU. But does going to an art school make you a good artist? Not so sure anymore. I feel that a "good" artist comes from within. You have to feel it to create it. I am not a "master" of art, but I have a love of all types of art. My specialty is mixed media art and mosaics. I love teaching and seeing my students smile when they themselves create a stunning piece of art of their own. I don't believe in doing the art for them, but encouraging them to unleash their creative side and just let go. Everyone has a creative side, we just somtimes lose it as we grow older. Aritst @ Heart has been my baby, my love, my inspiration. I love being able to come to work and know that I get to make someone smile. I am learning art everyday! Oh, and by the way, my father was a famous wildlife artist, but I can't even draw a duck!
