As my art business rapidly grows and I had the exciting privledge of putting my paintings in two beautiful stores where I grew up, it felt only fitting that I visit my highschool art teacher Mr. Cardell. I am very proud to be a Holy Child graduate but also very lucky to have had such an encouraging and patient teacher. While I know I was not his most talented student he made everyone in his class feel as if they were just that. As we visited he immediately brought up pictures of paintings I had done 17 years ago as if they were yesterday. Those years were a special time that helped lead me the successful business I have created today, and for that I am endlessly thankful.
