Creative Background and Art Education

My creative journey as an adult started with Scrapbooking, from which I moved on to Mixed Media. I had so many pretty papers! I turned them into collage. After taking a class with Tim Holtz and Donna Downey at the Puerto Rico Scrapbooking Convention, I moved on to 3-D Mixed Media.  The next natural progression for me was to study Acrylics and Watercolor. Acrylics and Mixed Media have become my passion and obsession!  So this is what I have done so far...
