Studio Art
Fort Lewis College
I am attempting to sell my studio and digital art. I have painted since I was 7, tried majoring in Dance and after forty two years, earned an Assoc. of Arts from Pueblo Community College and transferred to Fort Lewis College as an Art Options Major. I tried my first Digital Media course last semester and passed with some tutoring help. I consider it a privilege to study with the younger students but would like to hone my skills to earn a living. I start most of my ideas with digital photography, drawing, or painting, and sometimes turn them into digital creations. The computer and digital world is new to me, yet fascinating. Even if I never make it a living, I plan to keep creating all my life.
