Since I was a little girl, I always wanted to somehow help people and I have always been interested in art in its many forms. Yet, until quite recently in my life, I never really realized that I could actually produce something other people might like to look at :) I have taken many courses in Art, Language, Storytelling and Child Development. I have earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communicative Disorders, from California State University Long Beach and hold a California Speech-Language Pathology Assistant License.

Working as a Speech and Language Pathology Assistant in an elementary school, has given me the opportunity to come up with creative therapy materials in order to engage students with speech, language and communication disorders grades kindergarten through fifth grade.

It’s been a 5 year process, so far, of writing, illustrating and most likely self-publishing an educational children’s alphabet picture book! Each letter of the alphabet is brought to life with unique and colorful illustrations and artful alliteration. Coming soon to an Amazon store near you!

Creating my book and therapy materials has further strengthened my love for art and has allowed me to explore my personal expression of my imagination onto paper. Whether it be drawing, illustration, photography, or anything else that happens into the creative world, I am in.

My goal is to obtain a Master’s Degree in Speech and Language Pathology. My mission is to continue writing and illustrating children’s books and creating amazing therapy materials for children with autism and other disabilities. In the future, I hope to create an organization which will meld art and therapy into one.

I am now the proud owner of Speech Bubble Books and The Speech Bubble, a place for Speech Teachers, Therapists, Parents and Educators to find fun and easy hand drawn games and materials for speech articulation and more! Educational hand-drawn games, images and materials can be purchased now on Etsy and Teachers-Pay-Teachers. Your favorite images can be made into calendars, mugs and more at Redbubble and CafePress. Check out my photography at iStock. Connect with me on Facebook and Twitter.

Do you Visualise?

I’m curious how many people actually see, or visualise, what they are going to draw in their minds before they start drawing or painting. / I’m trying to decide whether or not I do that myself. / I think that for me, after a while of not drawing, all of a sudden I’ll feel like drawing a lot. I have an idea of what I’m going to draw, I look at my colored pencils and paper…

My Niche

As of the beginning of my intention of posting and selling my artwork online, I have desperately been trying to find my unique and personal niche in art. Articles online urge us artists to find our niche and stick with it. Yet, I seem to be all over the place, niche-less and lost in a whirlwind of art mediums including photography, drawing, writing, and all things punny. So, do I corral my seemi…

Hello

Hi :) / I began creating my portfolio on Redbubble this past December. I love the format, ease of uploading, and all of the art! Wow, there are so many talented artists on this site! It makes me feel so inferior, hahahahaa! / Looking back, turns out I have been into art in some form all throughout my life. It had never before really dawned on me that someone other than my immediate family and chi…
