What a blessing it is to share this passion of photography with my husband. He has challenged me, taught me so much, and encouraged me to pursue what I love.

Teaching and watching my students experiment with art makes me so excited. Especially when unexpected things happen such as this one time the power went out and these girls insisted on continuing their painting no matter what!! Luckily, they found lanterns which were pretty bright.   Their project today was to make a painting of a vase with whatever patterns they could think of,  and then paint flowers.   And this was the result.

Celebrating a special graduate!

Micaela...

This young lady graduated from 8th grade!!! I've known her since she was a little girl and I was delighted to do this photo shoot with her. She is precious, you will find her most of the time serving people at her home and in church ministries, baking goodies in her kitchen, and taking care of a bunch of children! She loves to chat and laugh.

Art project

We love gluing, and building!! This is one of our favorite projects using wooden building blocks to make all kinds of interesting sculptures.

Especially in the summer time I know a lot of you mom's want your children to continue exploring and learning and this is a perfect way for them to do both and have fun.

Ellen Camacho

This girl is awesome and has an artistic eye. She loves makeup and experimenting with hair! She also loves helping people, goes out of her way to make sure others are happy. What I absolutely admire about her is how down to earth she is and is almost always smiling! She has a very enthusiastic, and warm personality.

Learn & create!

Offering one-on-one art lessons

Here's an example of my most recent work with a child. This was a fun and educational project. It involves using lots of cardboard, glue, paint, and imagination! In this picture Alyssa was able to cut out shapes, mix colors, and learn how to arrange an image however she desired. This project encourages children to mix colors and learn more about shapes, 3D form, patterns and design. 

On Mother's Day

Value your mom. So many times I have taken my mother for granted, and many times I was not the best behaving daughter!!! But no matter what I did or said, and no matter how bad I failed or messed up, with one look in her eyes I could see her deep love for me and forgiveness. She is the mom who works so hard to make sure everyone is fed and happy! So cherish your mom today, tell her how much you love her and remember the things she has done for you.

Explore, Imagine, & Create!

The last 3 years I have worked as a Teacher's Assistant in an inclusive special needs classroom. I have experience working with a variety of kids and meeting their needs.This has been one of the most rewarding jobs I have ever had. It requires a lot of love, flexibility, and patience. I am obsessed with art and LOVE being with children. My dream is to one day open an art studio where I can have a room full of people all ages learning together and creating what they love. I want to make each individual feel like they can relax and be free to express themselves in their artwork. I love images that tell a story. Art is not only a fun thing to do, but I find it very therapeutic and relaxing.   

For all the Mama's out there! you know you need a break, and your kids will LOVE this! 

Open to students of special needs as well, and for 1 on 1 art lessons. I will travel to your home, all you need is an easel or table to work on, nearby sink, and quiet area with plenty of light. I provide some materials.  

A todas las madres, pongan atención. Todos sabemos que necesitas un descanso, y a tus niños les encantaría desarrollar sus talentos. Me gustaría trabajar con tus hijos/as y darle clases de arte. Tengo experiencia trabajando con las edades de entre 8 y 14 años. Si tienes alguna pregunta por favor contáctame vía correo electrónico a joyfulart9@gmail.com o por teléfono al (973) 590-6328.
