Other art - Painting & Digital Art
I began working with pen and ink, moving onto painting, then digital imaging. I am experienced desktop publisher with full range knowledge of web works and designs. My ultimate enjoyment is derived from painting murals. I take great pleasure when I paint murals. I like to see the unmasked expressions on people's faces when they walk by in the morning to a blank wall, then! upon their return home in the afternoon , to a large painting. My activities with the community involves discussions of improvement with community members and are the best rewards for my donation of any artistic activity, mainly in forms of murals and paintings for community centers, or lessons to the children in the arts as one of the mediums for their expressions.
