> Thank you for checking out my work and my classes, and I hope you enjoyed yourself! Art is an expression of our lives, our experiences, a moment, our passions, our fears, our desires, our thoughts, our rage, our consideration, all of our beauty, our conversations, our connection to others, and of course, so much more. Art - in all of its forms and expressions- is important for all of humanity.
