From houses, to canvases, to murals, if it requires creativity and a paintbrush, count me in!  I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design and during my Undergrad studies, I spent plenty of nights in the paint studio just to alleviate the stresses of school. Painting is my go-to therapy, even though some people find it stressful, I find it cathartic. I’m excited I have the opportunity to teach others how to paint and to enjoy the canvas and not stress over it. I strongly believe that everyone holds an immense amount of creativity, I don’t think we could survive this planet if we weren’t all somewhat creative in life!
