I am an art therapy teacher in a forensic psychiatric hospital. Art has always been a part of my life though never as deeply and as healing as with my current job. In the past I mainly stayed with using graphite and colored pencil for portrait work. In the recent 5 years I have branched out to different mediums as well as getting into abstract painting. I painted around 15 murals/wall art for the North Texas State Hospital Juvenile facility. I would like to get more involved in art culture and mural work with the community.
